I have seen some first gen's with a kilometres per hour speedo's. We didn't migrate to metric until the 70's. I understand that they were for export to Europe. It is very much to your advantage to buy used vehicles in Canada. At approx. 1.60
Cdn dollars to the USD, you can get great deals. I was trying to buy a used parts chaser, but the lots were just about empty of any decent used trucks, the reason, US citizens are buying like crazy, with Free trade, I believe there is no duty on one year old vehicles.

1st-Gen. Camaros were never made in Canada; Camaros sold new in Canada were built at Norwood and Van Nuys and were identical to those sold in the U.S. (except for a GM of Canada oil change recommendation sticker on the right inner fender), and higher anti-freeze concentration and extra fuel for transport. If the car was delivered new in Canada, GM of Canada has all the documentation for it; no records exist for U.S.-delivered units. Cowl tags are also identical to U.S. units - the only difference in the whole car is the oil change sticker.
Cars for domestic delivery usually got three gallons of gas - just enough to get on and off the haulaway trucks and rail cars to the dealer. Canadian cars got an extra five gallons put in the tank because they usually had more transfer points between the plant and the dealer.
