Love the car, love the color. But why is there a Chevy motor in it!?!?!

Just kidding. But a Poncho 400 would be cooler.

I agree with the others too...keep the color, I think it looks great. Maybe paint the raised part of the hood flat black to match the scoop.

Nice 72!

I like the Ventura, the chevy motor and the green.
Mines a Ventura II and not a Sprint.
Did yours come with a 350 ?
