    What do you guys think of this?

    Ok, its a 67, as stock basic as they come, and its in great condition... is it worth 4500... And, what engine is this? It doesn't look like the OHC that I see all over the web. Any info would be nice.

    Wow, that's pretty. If the body is sound and not filled with bondo, and everything else is clean, I'd say 4500 is a good deal, 6 banger or not.

    Bring a magnet with you when you check it out. Also, do some research on the Super Chevy website....they did an article a few years back on buying first gens, they had a lot of good tips on what to look for.

    And you're right, that definitely doesn't look like the OHC six, IIRC that had a finned aluminum rocker cover. I'm not that familiar with them, but I'm thinking that looks like a Chevy 6? But then again, it looks like it's painted the right Pontiac Blue. Early Chevy sixes were blue too, but I believe it was darker.

    Does it really matter though? That car is begging for a 400.

    Only 2 6-cyls, other sources state they are both OHC motors, but the one in the pic sure looks like the Chevy (pushrod) straight-6. Could've been swapped? I guess the main difference in the base 165HP and 215HP sixes was the carb, w/ the 4-bbl being the "Sprint-6", which would likely get a badge on the hood (I've seen these before).

    I spoke to the lady who owned the car. She said her and her husband spent hours just straightening the body. It looks super straight in person. It of course has those chips out of the paint on the driver side door from those inconsiderate
    @$$holes that don't give a crap about OPP.

    Could also have been orginaly sold in Canada, Pontiacs sold here where built with chevy drivetrains. If it was a Canadian import that would explain the chevy motor.
