    Should be easy - it's been re-wired ..
  6. Congrats! You have a genuine 1961 to about 66 Pontiac engine. Should be a 389 cu in. There are stamped numbers and letters just below the passenger side head...they'll tell exactly what horsepower [most with a 4 bbl were 303 HP] and what compression ratio, what kinda Pontiac car it came in and if it originally had an automatic or stick.
    Type in Pontiac engine I.D. online and you should be able to I.D. this sucker.

    Intake is date E of 5 and its for an I'd assume its a 1965 intake. Maybe the engine is as well?

    I was gonna say a 326... but with the 4bbl manifold, more likely a 389.

    Yes, early Poncho. Looks like a pretty good install, how’s the rest?

    I’d at least pull the intake and see if the moisture made it to the heads before trying to fire it off.
