72 grill should be same as 73.what is it you feel you would need.

72s were totally different in the sheetmetal from the 73's and 74's. Those two will interchange without any difficulty, but to swap a 72 grille onto a 73 would necessitate changing the entire front header, if not the whole front clip. A 75-78 front clip will bolt right onto a 73 or 74 full sized Ford and it actually looks like it belongs (my neighbors have a 74 with a 77 front end on it).
