No, its a conversion. Welcome to the site.
In the early 80 s they did put an olds motor in GM pickups. It was an olds motor converted to diesel. They were a real POS.
However the 455 you got there is a real gem.Lotsa horses.You should find a cutlass project for it, that would be sweet.That would give you a good reason to put a BBC back in the pickup.LOL

Just ask and someone will help you the best we can. Is the truck a 2wd, auto manual trans. You can fit pretty much any motor you want in this truck, from the gm family that is.
