There's a guy at a local gin joint who claims that the 301 CID V-8
motor in Pontiacs (specifically T/A's) was never truly a Pontiac
motor. He claims it was either an Olds or a Buick production motor
that Pontiac used.
Anyone care to comment on this?
Specifically, are there any numbers we can check on my buddy's 80 T/A
to prove the motor was made by Pontiac?
I could see the guy claiming that my buddy's motor might not be a
Pontiac, but ALL of Pontiac's 301's were not made by Pontiac? I and a
lot of other folks in the place find that extremely hard to believe.
BTW, the guy is largely regarded as less than reliable, but I just
wanted to find concrete proof that he's wrong so we can shut him up.
If he's right, however, I'll be happy to spread the word that he is
Many thanks for any info!
