I don't know for sure, but I believe that the '74 GTO is the same body as the Nova and a 350 Pontiac was used in that, so you might check into it.

Bill's right. The '73 and '74 Ventura with the 350 also used the same setup. So did the 1st gen Firebirds with the V8. Many of the parts are available from Ames Performance or Performance Years. Should be just bolt-in stuff.
