Pontiac Engines?!
I have a 1967 Pontiac firebird that came with a 1974 455 engine (not SD) when purchased. I was looking for a 1967-1967 pontiac 400 engine. I purchased one that turned out to be a 1976 Pontiac 400. I am told this is a good running engine. My question is, if I were to put this engine into the 67 would it be a bad idea? Or should I hold out and try to find a first generation 400. What is a 1976 Pontiac 400 in good running condition even worth? Thank You

I don’t think it’s a bad idea, if you can put a good solid runner in and go out and enjoy that is what counts. In the meantime while you are enjoying your cruising, keep your ears on the listen for a 67 engine. Now, if you are planning on attending Pebble Beach, you had better find the original engine and wait for your invite!

You can go to www.firstgenfirebird.org I know you will find a 67-400 motor there, I found a 350WK HO motor complete there, very rare motor for my 68 firebird conv.4-speed. I have a 1968 Pontiac 400 in it right now and going to put in the 350 this summer. The 1976 400 probably has about 225 HP if that, I'd wait and find the correct year motor. Also you can get all the info on your car at "Pontiac Historical Society" they will have all the info on your car, I mean everything,total build sheet, what motor tranny, color, interior etc.... you can even get the original (copy) of your window sticker.Good Luck
