Any suggestions on putting Vintage Air on my 74? This is a non air condition car.

I use vintage air in all my builds, if I can give you any advice it would be to use the EZ clip hose and fittings, Yes it will be more expensive, but it is slim and easy to do. You won't need to make those thick hoses and crimp them all. ( I know, it's not a nova in the pic but you get the idea). You can run the hoses out of sight, on this car I ran them on the fender apron.

I only use E-Z Clip as well. As said, the OD of the hose is much smaller and if you use the Aeroquip hose it has an exposed braid that looks great. You can put heatshrink at the ends of the hose to cover the E-Z clamps for a cleaner look.
In the pix you can see the small size of the hose and one hose w/ the shrink.

these are the parts I ordered. I did a quote from Vintage Air and they said it might be cheaper to piece it out from places like Summit and Jegs, so I did and ended up saving $250 over the original vintage air quote. This is for an LS truck motor so you probably will need a different compressor ( 021173) and mount (141828).
