  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Hello everyone, I am a life long Pontiac fanatic.  I just sold my 71 HO Formula to my cousin, and my next car is going to be a Ventura 2.  I've been trying to find a 72 equiped with the Pontiac V8.  Not having much luck.  There is a 72 with the chevy V8 for sale in my area.  Does anyone know if I can buy the correct motor mount brackets to place a Pontiac V8 in the factory correct location?  I have a complete 74 GTO shaker hood setup, and need the engine to be in the exact location as a factory installed unit to make everything fit correctly.  I dont care for the 73-74 cars as much as the first two years, and finding a 72 equiped with the Pontiac V8 is difficult.

Welcome to FP.   Generally the Chev sits in the same spot, but usually sits higher in the engine bay. At least that's what I found with restoring my 66 back to Pontiac power.

The 67-69 Firebirds share a bunch chassis parts with the X body cars.  Anyone now if the frame rail brackets are the same?
