The '69 Beaumont emblems are the same as the 1969 Canadian Pontiac emblems. The 307 emblems are used on the Beaumont & Acadian (Nova) only; 350 badges were used on all Canadian Pontiacs, Beaumonts & Acadians. They also made both the 396 & 427 badges but they were only used on the full-sized Pontiacs (they'd be a rare find). The Beaumont SD-396 used tape stripes to advertise the 396.
Unlike the full-sized 1969 Chevies that were the last holdover with the 327 (& the Camaro), full-sized Canadian Pontiacs used the 350 2-barrel as the base V8 for the entire production run in '69.
The 327 numerals on the V emblem were used in 1968 only. They were visibly different from the '69s.
Below are 3 badges. The white car is a '68 Pontiac 2+2 with 327, the Verdoro Green car is a snap of a '69 Beaumont convertible at the Northern Chevelle Gathering in 2006. The 427 badge is from an extrememly rare 1969 Pontiac 2+2 427 4-speed (1 of 10 built with that drivetrain)
Cam you are a wealth of information. thank you.
dont really care for the 327v8 emblem on the white car.
some of the new pontiacs have the same emblem that the 69 has in between the headlights.the car will be dark blue so this may look good.
I can add further to the info. The 327 badge on the '68 was used on both the Pontiac & the Beaumont. The '68 Acadian simply used a simple V8 badge that was like earlier Beaumonts and Pontiacs. Actually in '67 the Pontiac used a large V8 badge that was the same whether anything from a 283 to 427 was under the hood.
