If your steel wheels have "slits" for air venting, they will probably accommodate dog dish caps. The center area has raised ears that the caps snap onto. However by 1972 is it unlikely that you will have those wheels. If your wheels have "holes" for venting, then the dog dish caps won't work, or more importantly, the beauty trim rings that go with the dog dishes won't work because they look dreadful bisecting the vent holes of the wheel.
