Congratulation on a great old Pontiac. We have heard about "factory" RHD Pontiacs coming out of Canada, but have little information on them.

Your numbers you shw are all body and paint/trim numbers. The VIN (check title and engine should be the same), will tell more.

We have heard that there are very good history records on Canadian Pontiacs. Here is a place to check: http://www.vintagevehicleservices.com/options.html

Keep us posted on your search and success.

I purchased a '65 GP last summer, a 59k survivor. I have driven it to several Pontiac and Corvair shows, putting on 12,000 miles. It is very original and unmolested and is loaded with factory options. All its missing is the 421 posi and power vent windows. The paint is silver blue, a very old and faded job, black mint original interior and zero rust.
Very few "American" Pontiacs were sold in Canada. 99% were Pontiac (looking) bodys built in Chevrolet Factorys in Canada with 100% Chevy drive trains and mostly Chevy interiors except for a look-alike dash.
Attach pictures of your car!
