Wow, I just checked the microfilm and it shows the 4-spoke wheel starting
from the beginning of the '72 model year, yet I was sure that my VERY early
'72 came with the 2-spoke wheel. I'm beginning to doubt my memory.

That car rusted away so I parted it out. I have all the parts, and I don't
have any 4-spoke wheels....

This may be another example of where the microfilm is wrong. (Or it could be
another example of my failing memory.)

I seen an example of this with VW back in late 87 during my brief time I
turned wrenches at a VW dealer in Huntsville AL for about 6 months. We got a
load of Wolfsburg editions Jetta's in. The had a grill and trim like an 87
but they had digifant II FI like an 88 instead of CISe FI like the 87s had.
So you may have had a deal like that.
