BuzzLOL . Hope... not from an Intrepid.... that panel is about 1/3 as wide, the light switch is below, not above the latch, and switch is mounted on inside fold of panel with button sticking toward outside of car... and my switch still doesn't work... LOL!

You're right, that is a mount for a switch isn't it. It would have to be much later than I thought.

BuzzLOL . Looks kinda like the ones that were in my '86 Monte Carlo... with a pass through vent... but with a dome light switch... is that a NOS/aftermarket piece? Aren't they usually all welded in? But I think Monte light switch was in front, this one more like the switch in my Dodge Intrepid... which reminds me, that switch isn't working on driver's door and needs attention now that weather is warming up...

. I didn't know they went to the trouble of switching that PMD OHC 6 to a BOP bellhousing... just figured they used off the shelf Chevy parts... hope they didn't do that with the Iron Duke 4-banger...

. Anybody who bought that 4 bbl. OHC 6 with a PowerGlide should have been arrested... they sounded and ran great with the Saginaw 4-speed with 3.11 1st gear... I saw some Tempest Sprints run at a Gymkhana we had set up in the Detroit Diesel parking lot in Flint back in '66 or '67... I remember the exhaust kind of popped when they first floored it and then rumbled off, very un-6-banger sounding, it came off the line strong, and seemed to really rev... we had about an 1/8 mile drag strip set up... or whatever we had room for... huge parking lot...

. Of course, the OHC setup was kind of wasted on the basic setup with 1 or 2 barrel whichever it was... the whole appeal of the OHC 6 was to be like the ones in foreign cars like the Jaquar XKE... I think those were rated like 265 - 325 HP... but were actually less... in my favorite episode of Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson screams 'They Lied'... LOL ... Up until recently, I thought those Jaguars were screamers, then last Summer I looked in ones at our local British Car Show and was shocked to see the tachs all redlined at a lowly 5,000 RPMs... I figured at least 6500-7000 with the SOHC setup... Those Jaguars cost more than a base Caddy back in the day, so if you wanted OHC 6, the Pontiac was the way to go for most people... and it outrevved the Jaguar (but I didn't know that)... and could be had in the sports car-like Firebird... and was far more dependable...

. That test posted of Firebird OHC 6 shows top speed of 114 MPH... which seems at least 10 MPH low...

Not all of those parts are GM. Look at that distributor, it's a Ford.

I don't know, the hole near the bottom looks like it's for "Astro-ventilation" and the C trucks didn't get that until the redesign in '73

A friend had one in a '69 Tempest back in the early '80's that broke a rod and he sent someone to the salvage yard to pick one up that they said they had for $150 and what was was brought back was a Chevy 6 cylinder. He called and told them it wouldn't bolt up and they sent someone to look at it and they said, "no wonder", that's a Pontiac OHC and they're different and we don't have one. So they let him return it for a full refund and he found one in a TRADER paper and bought it. for half the price of the Chevy engine.

The one in the pic is hard to tell the exact ci size since they looked alike.
I worked with a guy in the late 70's that had a '69 Le Mans convertible with the high performance 6 and a 4 speed with buckets. He had a build sheet to prove it was all original. I did a tune up on it with around 100k miles, rebuilt the carb and replaced the timing belt. It really was quite quick for a 6 banger...

MARTINSR Ok guys, I know it's not my turn but I have a fun one I think. I don't know the answer! What do you think this NOS B pillar skin is from? I love seeing NOS stuff like this, oddness to the max, what in the heck is it from?
