    One look under the hood, and all bets are off at the current price (already 11.5K).

    ~ the Pontiac OHC 6 was a very advanced American engine in '67 with much racing and developmental success. it shared internal dimensions with the standard 230-cubic-inch (3.8 L) Chevrolet I6 block, but was available with a four barrel and a four speed. the first American performance six-cylinder.

      ~ @ William Robinson, very true. a remarkable evolution of the OHC engines racing in Europe up to this time.
      the tri-power is fine sculpture for me.
      presume you have seen the Pontiac Banshee?

      Okay it looks like we were wrong to be dismissive of the 6 cylinder lump under the hood…and while its not even a flow-through design it did make in 165 horsepower in 1967, which was 5 horsepower more than the infamous Buick/Olds/Pontiac/Rover all-alloy 215 (3.5 liter) V8 made in the same year.

      ~ didn't read your remarks as dismissive in the least. the Pontiac 'iron duke' 4cylinder is another long lived achievement that on occasion is pigeon-holed without note. the mantle of 'GM's performance division' shifted with whom you were talking during the period, but the 'tin indian' made a fight of it.

    Faux racer is right. How many 6 cylinder automatics ever made it on to the race track?

    In Sprint form, this engine was upped to 205 hp, with a 10.5:1 CR.

    Honestly, that engine is one of the things that really attracts me to this particular car. I wonder how hard it would be to find and install a four-speed gearbox?
