The GTO nameplate needs little introduction among car buffs, yet there are still a surprising number who know little about the Ventura based version from 1974. With the muscle car movement largely gone by this period and the era of smaller cars ushered in full swing, the GTO had been moved from the mid-size line to the Ventura. The gas crisis kept sales on performance cars low and consequently, these Ventura GTO's are scarcely seen today. Reportedly, this is one of less than 2500 coupes with automatic transmission. It is powered by a 350 four barrel V8 and also has a Posi rearend. A lot of money has already been invested into it so that it offers the astute collector a special chance to get one of the most fun cars ever offered by Pontiac.
