This is one of 12 GM PD-4107's built in Pontiac and sold to Ansett Pioneer of Australia through GM Overseas Operations in 1968. The serial numbers were 1134-1145.

What makes this an oddity is the right hand drive and the left hand entrance.

Nothing odd about that if you live in Australia. This is very common for US manufacturers selling buses to satisfy the rules of the roads with right side drivers and left side doors.

This has been done with Flxible Clippers, GM's as pictured above and MCI's in the past.
