Welcome to the forum. The T-41 endura option was a mid year offering on '71 LeMans & LeMans Sport models, & a full year offering on '72 LeMans models (except '72 Luxury LeMans). This appearance option cost more in '71 ($70 something dollars) & $41 on '72 models. The numbers for total 1972 T41 front end LeMans Wagons has not been officially documented. My bet is that the total of 1972 T-41 optioned wagons is up around 350-400 built. In the 80's through mid to late 90's I was always falling into 72 T-41 LeMans parts cars. At the same time, 71 T-41 parts & project cars were very few & far between. have several pieces off two '71 T-41 23737's & a good variety of '72 pieces. Owned & eventually sold a brazilla gold '72 T-41 9 pass wagon project car. Have parted on three more '72 T-41 wagons and know of 5 more '72 T-41 wagons that were avail as projects in N Texas & OK through the 90'a & early '00's.
Below are factory production numbers

7....L78 400 4bbl
1....L75 455 4bbl
Zero... factory LS5 455 HO wagons (or 4 door LS5 A-body's of any body style)
4558 total '71 LeMans models built with T-41 option
20,881 total '72 LeMans models built with T-41 option
much higher sales on '72 models ordered with the T-41 option were due to multiple things:
- no '72 GTO converts being built, allowed dealers to sell many more T-41 equipped LeMans Sport converts
- reinventing the WU2 GT option for '72 to make it the LeMans GT option with the T-41 option being able to be combined with the WU2 option
- lowering of the option price.
- last, having an entire model year to promote, order, & sell LeMans with this option
