1965-1979 Pontiac Intake Gaskets

Yes, they are different

There are two intake gaskets for the traditional Pontiac v8 from 1965-1979. The top is good for 1965-1971 and the bottom is good for 1972-1979. Pontiac changed the head and intake center exhaust port, and if the wrong gasket is used and not matched up, you will get an exhaust leak! You can block off an earlier intake\head combo with a later one and prevent leaks if done properly.
