1974 PONTIAC GTO - A SHADOW OF IT'S FORMER SELF
So this is what the GTO had become by '74. Not even close to those glorious and super high powered GTO's of days gone by. But very simliar to the compact Pontiac Ventura and the Chevy Nova, sharing the wheelbase, frame, and body of both. Only 7,058 of the GTO were made this year making this a very rare car indeed. The "upgrade" to a GTO cost $195.00 but you got a hood scoop, distinctive grille AND a 350 cid V8 engine that cranked out 165 horses. So, maybe it's a miniature muscle car. You can still see Pontiac quality in this GTO from front to back. The decals are still perfect. The interior flawless as well as the paint. You can eat off the engine block. What you have here is a perfect original survivor that has a character of cuteness about it. Would I like to own this? You bet. It's still a winner. Thanks very much for viewing this rare and perfect 1974 Pontiac GTO.
70 Double Blown GTO
My 1970 GTO with two blowers. It's 474ci Pontiac engine with a 8-71 blower on top of a 6-71 blower. This is from the last day of being double blown. I'm going to one single 8-71 blower and going racing. The front clip was removed to make it easier to work on. The reason for the double blowers was not as a power enhancement like many ASSume. I stacked the blowers to have a car that stood out in the crowd. Most Pro Street cars were starting to blend together. If you seen one, you had seen them all. That wasn't the case with this GTO. Al someone had to say was "The double blower GTO" and people knew which car. I was told it couldn't be done, so I attempted it and it worked. It stayed that way for almost 2 years. I knew a twin turbo setup would make more HP. I knew I could have run a 14-71 blower and made more power. That wasn't the point. I wanted to be different than the other cars in the parking lot, I did that now it's time to ove on. For all those people who don't understand why, I'm not going to try and explain it to you anymore. Get over it. I didn't expect EVERYONE to love it. But you won't forget it.
Me and my dad were at a car show (my dad has a 1964 gto-hardtop) and there was a 1974 drag racing gto-tht thing was mean!!
