Sorry but I'm not 100% sure, although from the limited information available, I think it was a low-volume series production.

JEFA FR 72
Not quite the name I have for it, but close enough to earn the point, so well done. I have this as the Jefa Pilote Formula Renault.

It looks as though your source has simply provided a more generic description of the car as opposed to an official designation. Jean Faure's JEFA cars from this era were given designations according to formula (FL = Formula Libre; FF = Formula France; FR = Formula Renaut), followed by the year.

Anyway, thanks for the point!

No, itís the official model designation as its taken from a Jefa (note lower case) sales leaflet.

Interesting! By the way, Faure's logos were almost always in all lowercase (including the 'j') or all uppercase. Every publication I've seen has used all uppercase. Did the sales leaflet use a capitalized 'J' followed by lowercase letters?
