This is false.See, controversy! Some say A-body slant six sbp drum brake cars used lht thru 75.
Base model slant six A bodies were fitted with 4 wheel 9" small bolt pattern drum brakes even into 1976. I've owned a couple 1970s, a 1971, 3 1972s, several 1973s and 74s, one 1975 and a few 1976 models. The LEFT hand thread lugs were not on the 1972 and later cars that I owned.
I have heard but cannot confirm that the A body cars built after Jan 1 1976 had to have front disc brakes as per Federal law.
