I'll just about bet you that's it's the same reason you can find so many Chevy engines in Mustangs, but almost no Ford motors in Camaros. Take care. Tom Worthington.

had a 69 camaro for years with a 455pontiac. bought the car and had the motor and a bunch of pontiac stuff sooo... 10.00 car back in early 90's. Won ALOT of street races with that car! oh crap! It just hit me! My nova isnt really a nova. Its actually a pontiac body with nova front on it. And i also had a 75Firebird in the 80's with a 455 olds. kicked ass on the street with that one too.

1969 firebird with a 640 inch bbc with a f-3... To answer your question, It wold cost way to much money to build a pontiac engine that would make the power of a BBC!!

I have a buddy of mine with a 68 with a Pontiac with some of those junk E-heads on it if you want to try some of those junk Pontiacs out?

Looks close to the color of your car too.

Doesnt surprise me alot of chevy guys think that Pontiacs dont run.Or are way too expensive.Or dont last.My last 455 went from `97-`07 with ZERO issues.Wasnt the fastest thing by any means;(10.90s-11.00s),but I didnt do anything to it.Change the oil and run it.

My 505 Pontiac that I am building will cost about the same as a 572 chevy crate motor.It WILL make between 860-920hp.

Not too shabby in my book.
