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?

I was working at a Pontiac dealership those years and we got a few in both Firebird's and LeMan's. They were indeed a quick engine. The money differences between the 6 vs the 8 weren't that much so if you were going to buy a new Firebird why would you want a six?
Gas miliage wasn't such a big deal then so that incentive wasn't there either. By the time the smog stuff and gas shortage struck the engine was gone.
That hood tach was neato!

John long I had a buddy who put one in a 47 Ford street rod. Worked great and always drew a croud. Most didn't know what it was.

MARTINSR It was in the "Sprint" check out this ad! Very cool, I have seen a few, including "back in the day".



They came in the Firebird too.









I have always been an inline six nut so I spotted it as being cool back then. And yes, the Quadrajet was standard equipment from Pontiac!

I've never saw one of those in a car. Maybe they didn't sell many around here?
