Did you ever find the 1967 and 1968 data as per above? It would be interesting.

 My last update was the 1960 engines, I bought that manual in order to do that in the spring. I always keep my eyes peeled for the missing data but if anyone has it let me know and I can insert in the proper place. I really like posting these type of technical threads, this creates a data base of information specifically for Canadian Pontiacs and the question really is, where else are you going to find this historically significant and invaluable information?

Ray,would you know what year a 307 "Strato-Flash" 200 horsepower engine was used in?  I've only ever seen 307 "Econoflame" and 307 "Astro-Flash" engines .

My research does not turn up the term "Strato-Flash" being used to brand the 307. It appears that Strato Flash last appeared in 1966 branding the 283 in the full size line.

 ...and the 307 replaced the 283 for 68, except the full-size Pontiac base V8 went from the 283 of 1967 to the exclusive 327 2-barrel of 1968. They skipped the 307 in the big Pontiacs and used it as the base engine in the full-size Chevrolets for 1968 only.

For 69 both the full-size Chevrolet & full-size Canadian Pontiac upgraded  the standard V8 for 1969 in lock-step. The Chevy got the 327 2-barrel while the Pontiac got the 350 2-barrel.

There was a real retraction in the Canadian Pontiac V8 engines for 1962. The 348 4-barrel & tri-power were dropped, replaced by a single mild version of the new 327. I often wonder if that also held true for Oshawa-built 1962 Chevrolets. The brochures may not help in this matter because it would have been possible to get even a 409 in the Chevy because they simply could have imported it from the U.S.  Four speeds also didn't make it into the Canadian Pontiacs until 1963, the year that a hotter 327 and a couple of 409s became optional. I wonder if that also held true for the Canadian Chevrolets? Anyway, see below:

I wonder if this was the "export" 307 which is listed in the parts catalogue for 1968 B CDN Pontiacs? I have had this decal for a long time and am sure its an original.IMG_6101[1].JPGIMG_6102[1].JPG

 That is a definite maybe wink    In 1967 GM produced 283 V8 powered Camaros for export to Europe; domestically they started with the 327 2-barrel.
