Ive been thinking about this for awhile, we all can look back at Cars that we know to be rare such as the one Convertible 68 Z28 or even the COPO's with a ZL-1 or 67 Z28's without any argument. Looking at the 74's in their entirety they're not really a rare car other than the fact they have been the first to get chopped up or disassembled because they have the right block and transmissions so we possibly lost over half of the total production to that and accidents. There is always the 4 Spd and Air conditioning caveat of 10 to 20% depending on the source, if thats real or not I would argue that if nothing else they both will sell a car that much faster if not add some value. When looking at 74's we (those who like, love or prefer big bumpers) see them in a few ways, the early production with Muncies and points and the late production with the HEI and Super T-10,s and the combinations of the 2 during the change. what are your thoughts looking downstream 10-20 years? Now their really is no difference between the productions. I'm guessing this will change as the car gets older and people start to restore these in greater detail to their original condition. We've seen guys looking for clips, carbs and distributors to make the cars right. I cant imagine at some point this wont be reflected in value the same way 4Spd and Air is today. No claims just thinking.
