NO! the Montana is a front wheel drive minivan and the firebird is a rear wheel drive, even if they were both rear wheel drive for some reason, the firebird engine would shred the wimpy minivan trans and it would be just wrong to put a minivan trans in a firebird.
well you can change the entire rear hatch with that of a trans am's but I dont think it would be worth the the money to convert the car into a trans am style car.
Nothing, the GTA didn't come out until 1987.

check the Pontiac dealership and order a pair for a trans am if all other types won't fit.
The Trans Am was introduced March in 1969, and was called Trans Am after the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) Trans-American Challenge Cup in which Pontiac wanted to compete. Pontiac originally wanted their top-end Firebird to be called the Sebring, but as it turned out, Chrysler trademarked the name first. On a side note, General Motors paid the SCCA $5 for every Trans Am sold.
