Pontiac GTO specs: 1974

The 1974 Pontiac GTO was one of the lightest if not the lightest GTO ever made. This is just one year after what was probably the heaviest GTO made. Commonly confused for the Chevy Nova, this GTO was the performance version of the Pontiac Ventura, which included a shaker hood scoop made famous on Trans Ams, and later on the Can Am. Just 200 horsepower was under foot, but the relative light weight evened out the lack of power. These cars were just a couple tof tenths slower than the widely accepted 1964 GTO’s.
