 Stop listening to Grunge!biggrin

I think it would be hard to find parts for it ... am I right?

It could be a parts car for another '74 Goat, but an expen$ive parts car.

It looks like a decent starter car. They are just a Ventura body with a shaker hood and GTO decals. If it's real throw a 455SD 4 speed in it and drive it-Hard!! Maybe a 12 bolt as well........How hard can it be.

Rust free maybe but I'll be surprised if he gets his price. 

I have an original pair of unique 74-only GTO heads if you do happen to buy it.

Looks too good to be a parts car, but by no means an "easy restoration".  Not all that desirable a model either, unfortunately (although I do like them).

Asking too much, Imho.

 Is it blue inside? Came from New Brunswick? If so, I think this is a car I stopped in NB to look at on my way back from the US in 2019. I liked it a lot, but the price was lower then as well.

 One thing to note though is that these cars can go for pretty good money if well restored. I saw a blue one in Carlisle two years ago that if my memory is correct, was going for over $30K USD.

You have to be able to see past that banged up Ventura, if you can beleive it Pontiac built 7,058 GTO's in 1974, the pinacle was 1966 with 96,946 but 74 wasn't even the lowest, that belongs to 1973 with 4,806. (43,146 Grand Ams though) 

The '74 is a pretty nice car when restored.

The car was based on the Formula X Perfomance concept Ventura ordered built in 1973 by John Schinella.

John, yes that's the car out of New Brunswick. Apparently it got painted this winter. It is a nice looking car.
As for the GTO, I do like it and it would be a fun car but I can't seem to swallow the asking price.

 Thanks for the update.  I had always liked these cars but got the general impression from the car community that they weren't that popular because they weren't considered a "real" GTO.  I guess that has changed over the years - I didn't realize how popular they had become.

Offer what you think its worth. But in person. Ive known sellers who've said the price is firm only to accept a lower offer while I was standing in front of them.

A blank canvas. Seems a bit rich - no matching powertrain or anything. Finished, as suggested above with a nice drivetrain, redo the interior, paint and cosmetics, it might bring $30USD in this market, but someone would have a LOT of labour in it to get it to that level, doing it themselves. Paying someone else $50+ CAD/hr to do it would put them underwater in a hurry.

The voice of experience, talking...

I agree and if I'm going to go through all that effort I'd rather it be a car I have some serious interest in like:
68 Beaumont
69 big block 2+2
70-72 Buick GS
Any finned Mopar
plus a few others.

 True, you should hold out for what you really want, not compromise on what you half want. I've done enough of that over the years, and in some cases never did get the car I really wanted when I bought the compromise car.

 The white Nova reminded me of the RCMP's 9C1 Novas that I saw around my area in the late 70s when I was at university.

 Yes, with a project car like this, the initial purchase price is the least of it, as you will be spending tons more money and a good chunk of your free time to bring it to the level that you want it at.  May as well spend it on a car that you really want.

A "done" car would be a slightly different story, as you'd spend more up front, but probably market value for it.  So if you got bored you can sell it and still get most if not all of your money back (or more if you've improved it while you had it).
