new here with a 57 pathfinder


Hi everyone i just bought a 57 pontiac 4 door, it is all complete and in pretty good shape, not much rust, it has a blue engine and is a inline 6, would it be a 261? i will post some pics as soon as i get approved on this site. i hope t try to fire it this week. it still has the 1970 Alberta plate on it so i think thats how long its been hiding.

Cheers to all

That'd be the 261. Where abouts in Alberta?

A hardy welcome aboard from Milton, Ontario. Originally your car would have been a 261 inliner that was green in colour but if it is blue someone in the past might have dropped in a Chevrolet 235. The Chevrolet 235's were painted blue and called "Blue Flame". On the passenger side of the motor just above the starter area, you will find the casting number. If the number starts with the letter W, then you have a 261. Both the 235 and 261 look alike but internally they are very different motors. We need pictures of your 57 and you will get all the help you need here on C.P. Good luck with the project. Cheers. George

Welcome aboard from another Ontarian ( is that a word? ).
Yep, we need to see and hear more about your car.

thanks for the replies, i was off getting my hand repaired and couldn't get back on here. i have a thick layer of mud to power wash off the car engine and get any numbers, i do know it has the Rochester  1bbl and the oil bath air cleaner, it dosent look like its been worked on very much. i think it was just parked and left alone, it has 84,000 miles on the odometer. i bought it out of southern Alberta Medicine hat area. valve covers and lifter covers are green ish, and the lower block is very blue. i will get some pics on here as soon as i can.
