pretty sure 74(and 75 I think) won't work. 78 or 79 was the 1st year with full electonic ignition, 76-78 is semi electonic.

try looking up the ignition parts on SOR, that should tell you more.

If it is just an ignition wiring harness issue, the harness should be the same up to the ignitor. The major wiring changes in later years have to do with smog control parts.

Yes it is just a wiring harness issue. The PO hacked up the harness so all bets are off if it's all there or going to the right places. This is all stock. The ignitor made me think electronic ignition but it may well have points, I have not yet looked. We're in the middle of restoring it.
