The model origin is Canada, there is no such car in the US. These cars share very few parts with the US Pontiacs other than some sheetmetal...

Back then, the factory assembled RHD Pontiac models used instrument panels from the Chevrolets of the first year of a body style. The '65-'68 RHD Pontiacs used '65 Chevy instrument panels. The LHD Canadian Pontiacs used regular Pontiac dashes which were similar to those of the US models.

RHD dashes model year style changes are prohibitively expensive for low volume manufacturing for Canadian GM full size vehicles...

A lot of "American" cars in Australia were Canadian exports, because Canada and Australia were both part of the British Commonwealth, and import duties from other Commonwealth nations were less than non-Commonwealth naiotns. As such a US Pontiac incurred heavier import duties than a Canadian Pontiac, making it less viable to import from USA.
