Just a reminder, it was just a couple of years ago that John Beck (Pro Machine, Placentia CA) nearly won the small block Engine Masters Challenge with a stroked 307 (a very close third place I believe).

His combo was not all that exotic, it is listed in one of the Pop Hot Rod issues (sorry, I do not remember the issues to look up). One of his reasons for building an engine around a 307 block was that the smaller bore size was beneficial (less prone to detonation) when running higher compression on pump gas.

The main stake through the 307's heart was that it was an economy V8 from the get go, most had a two barrel carb. 307's never originally came with any sort of performance cylinder head etc.
