If it's a real Pontiac, it should fit fine. Would it be possible for you to get all the numbers off it? (Date code, casting code, etc) to id exactly what it is?

Google "pontiac engine codes" to get information on the locations of the various codes and how to read them.

Make sure you're getting a Pontiac engine; they built Firebirds with Chevy small blocks (305 and 350).

1983 Pontiac Bonneville (G) wagon
