'76 Pontiac Ventura $2000 or trade for V8 MN12?

Lost just about all interest this car. Not in bad shape some surface rust here and there, interior in good shape, motor runs, trans shifts good.

The Engine: '73 350 Olds(was told it was a '69 but I ran the #'s, it aint), has the #8 heads and a 4bbl. and the usual chrome plus an HEI dist. Mileage unknown as its not original to the car. Original was an Olds 260.

The Gremlins: wipers dont work, someone cut the plug to the wiper motor off, I never bothered to fix it cause well, I never drove it in the rain. Gas gauge reads full, all the time(probably ground issue). Valve covers leak like a Sumbitch, new gaskets didnt help, I think the covers are tweaked, however I have a set of factory ones that should be fine.

The extras: #5 heads, new Lunati cam and lifter set, new timing chain, new stock mech fuel pump, new holley performance mech fuel pump, stock vavle covers, points dizzy, bunches of points for said dizzy, bunch of gaskets, and Melling HV oil pump. I'm sure theres other stuff I'm forgetting.

Anyway I'm asking $2000 OBO or trade for something interesting. If its RWD or 4x4 I'll consider it.


Those are pics from when I first got the car, doesnt look any different now. I have some interior pics somewhere which will be posted as soon as I locate them.

EDIT - May trade for a V8 MN12. Dont ask why cause even I dont know, something different I guess.

Wish I had the room.  With the parts you have listed and some elbow grease you could have a nice sleeper.  Of course, I'd do away with the points style distributor ;)

Good luck with the sale :burnout:

It has an HEI setup on it now, I think its a Hypertech. The points dizzy is sitting in box with all the other parts.


Found an interior picture.


Dont mind the dirty floor mats, they're clean now.

Heres what I'm really looking for, I'd like to get something with a 4.6 because, well, I want something different to mess with. I've worked on all kinds of pushrod motors but I need something different! lol

I no longer have the GP, had some nasty frame rot and I sold it someone who wanted to back-half it and make a drag car.

I'm also a Pontiac guy as well as a Ford guy. If its a Ford or anything from the BOP group I'm into it lol.
