    https://www.gmheritagecenter.com/gm-vehicle-collection/1970_Pontiac_Pegasus_Concept.html 1970 Pontiac Pegasus Concept Designed under the direction of William L. Mitchell, GM Design Vice President, the Pegasus was built as a "design concept" study from a production 1970 Pontiac Firebird. The front end, grille and fender vents were inspired by Ferrari designs. Enzo Ferrari contributed a 365 GTB/4 V12 engine to the project. The engine was mated to a Ferrari 5-speed transmission and a GM posi-traction rear axle. The 4-wheel disc brakes were from a Corvette, the wire wheels were from Borrani and the exhaust system, mufflers and instrument panel gauges were from Ferrari.

    Good points Frosty, BUT..... Everything on the Chevy is backwards from Pontiac. Starter on the wrong side, (usually battery too) fuel , plumbing on the wrong side, same with electrical. Justa sayin, this was all redone to get rid of the Chevy in my GTO and put the Pontiac heart back in.

    It will work but you will need to use upper and lower motor mounts from an early 2nd gen Camaro (396/402 car). Also, the transmission will need to be changed since the 301 engine has the BOP (Buick-Olds-Pontiac) bolt pattern and you are switching to a Chevrolet engine and bolt pattern. Depending on the transmission you use, you may have to move the transmission cross member back or get a new one. Depending on the overall length of the engine and the transmission, you may have to shorten your driveshaft too. Next consider upgrading your stock front suspension to a heavier duty front set of springs and shocks for the added weight of the BBC. Also consider upgrading your brakes. If you are adding a lot of giddy up go, you need to add whoo. Lastly, you are going to add a set of sub-frame connectors to help keep the uni-body from twisting, aren't you?
