Glad to join all you guys, hopefully I can learn some great info from you guys. I have a 74 Ventura that I bought as a roller and I'm looking for front fenders for it. Any help on where to find these would be much appreciated. I'm also looking for any interior pieces that wont cost me an arm and a leg!
Thanks

No engine or tranny. Im wanting to do an Lq4 swap But trying to find one for a decent price. Transmission option is still up in the air, I can never make up my mind. The car had a 3 speed on the column. Was thinking about putting a 5 speed but Im trying to decide what I really want. I have a 350 longtail tranny sitting in the garage but needs rebuilt. The car is all in primer. I have nova fenders that I got with the car but they wont let me use the Ventura grille. My interior panels are crumbling from age and not being taken care of. The car was originally a 6 cylinder car. I think its just a base model. I have new upper and lower control arms disc brakes master cylinder and gas tank waiting for my subframe to get sand blasted and my buddy to pull his car out of my garage. My goal is to be able to drive it before the end of summer.

I would place a parts request on car-part.com. I did find some grilles there and it is a good possibility that some yard has the fenders you need but not listed in the online inventory..

Sold a perfect running 1971 350 poncho last year.200 bucks.
It would fry the back tire.
I still have a virgin 400 from 1972

Try DVAP- Desert Valley Auto Parts...their inventory shows several rust free Arizona parts cars, they pull the parts and ship to you.

Desert Valley Auto Parts

Search '71-74 Pontiac Ventura, '73-74 Olds Omega, and '73-74 Buick Apollo, they all use the same fenders...as you have found, the '68-74 Chevy Nova fenders are not the same.

These guys have a ventura around that year in the yard, I saw it a few weeks ago while getting parts for a 442 I am restoring for a customer. May want to give them a call if you haven't found anything yet, as I remember it was a complete car.
