 Wrong engine! So close but not quite the right number.

I agree with Carl. I know it has to be a mental block but these American cars just do not appeal to me. There are enough differences to make it seem so wrong, the engine for sure at the top of the list.

I'm not going to read it all, but this is a nice car.

I could sit here for sure, Lucite, real wood (or looks like it) Cluster, Air, Gear, And.... No Power windows or Clock, go figure.

Great dash the 67. 68 got the pads which were probably a good start into impact safety.

I like it, but admittedly don't know much about these cars.

Shouldn't it have a 12 bolt under it, though?

You are talking now about a difference between US made Pontiac's and Canadian made Pontiac's. The Pontiac Motor Division never made a 12-bolt differential. They manufactured and used a 10-bolt in all of it's models up until 1970, where you will find a Chevrolet 12-bolt in some 455 HO GTO's and Grand Prix's.

Yes and from what I understand the 12 bolt is quite superior to the diff pictured when it comes to durability.

Thanks guys.  Yet another reason that the Canadian cars are better!

 That is all good info. I can add that the Pontiac differential pictured above was later used as the GM corporate h.d. rear in the 1971+ Big cars. Officially the 8.75" 1-bolt, it came in 1971 through at least 1979 full-size wagons, 1971-76 big block cars, 1977+ big wagons & police cars with 5" bolt circle wheels, plus 1973-77 A-body wagons (but not El Caminos, even with 454s). My 1977 Oldsmobile 98 Regency with 403 power had one. I think 1973+ Lemans & Grand Prixs with 455 power also used the 8.75" 10-bolt, and also all Cutlasses 1973-74.

 

Sometimes it is referred to as "a 12-bolt with a 10-bolt cover".
