The blocks of all Pontiac V-8s from the 287 to the 455 are the same size and very close to the same weight, which can make it more difficult to identify the 11 different engine displacements produced from 1955–79.

Is the Pontiac 301 good for a Catalina?

Yes, from what I remember about Pontiacs, any post-76 265-301-350-400-455 all use the same mounts. 301s are good for Grandma’s Catalina – until you start trying to push them too hard. We cracked the (low-deck block specific) main webs beating one up in a ’79 Grand Prix.
