I have aquired a 75 Ventura Custom that's been in storage since last registered in '92 from S.C. with 62,000 original miles on her.I've been trying to research it somewhat but there's not alot out there on it.It has the 4.1 l6 with a th350 tranny.Am I correct in understanding this has a Chevy engine in it? Looking to drop a v8 in it (without molesting her or parting with the 4.1) but not sure if I should be looking for a Poncho motor or a chevy.Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks!:confused:

I guess you could call it a Chevy engine or a corporate engine but not a Pontiac. Concerning the engine replacement you could go either way but the Pontiac will require an adaptor plate to match the trani.

So if I'm looking for an engine to bolt up to the th350 thats in it without an adapter,I'm looking for a chevy engine?

I agree,lol. I'm waiting for him to give me the engine code.All I know at this point is it's a carburated engine.
