You never need to run leaded gas but it helps with the lubricity. You can always put additives into the gas for that and since its a 72 there is a good chance that it originally called for leaded gas.

beginning in 1971 General motors implemented the use of hardened exhaust vavle seats in smallblock truck motors . by 1972 ALL GM engines were equipped with hardened exhaust valve seats for low lead fuel . I doubt very much however that your 500 eldo motor will like anything but premium , I know my 74 New Yorker's 440 HP motor sure does ... PBN
