I don't think those were oem on Acadian Sport Deluxes, they are '66 GTO "Ralley" wheels. My buddies car has full wheel covers that look a lot like '65 Corvette full wheelcovers, but are 14".
Wanted: Used +030 TRW L2249 or Speed Pro 7061P 12.5/1 289/302 ford pistons

Heres the wheelcovers that are on my buddies '65 Acadian SD, I'm not 100% certain, but I THINK these are oem for Beaumont and Acadian Sport Deluxes in '65. These are whats on my buddies '65 Beaumont convertible too. The front ones were on it when he bought it in '76 or '77 the rears were missing, I remember when he snagged that car. This lady named Sandy that lived down the street from him had been using it as a daily driver. Its black with a black top and white buckets.

Just so I am clear, the red car is not my buddies Acadian SD, its an internet photo I found that has the same wheelcovers. I think the Acadian/Beaumont wheelcovers in that pic might be pretty much the same as the '64 GTO full wheelcovers, but the lettering on the fake knock-off in the center is different?
EDIT: Just checked, they are not the same as '64 GTO. Probably unique to '65 Beaumonts and Acadian Sport Deluxes. Betcha they are pretty rare!

Bowtie, remember the green SD396 that Donnie Lynum had? Green with a white buckets interior, white vinyl top and horseshoe shifter?

In 1965 Gary Wright in Chatham Ont. ordered a 65 Beaumont SD convertible [Canadian version of the Chevelle]  from Davy Lowes Pontiac/ Buick in Chatham . The car was red with a white interior and top. A L79 327 350 h.p. 4 speed car. Took him 6 months to get the car. Ran 13.8 with Atlas bucrons on the rear. In mid 68 I took it in on trade and became the 3 owner. I didn't like the car and traded it off in a few months . Years later Gary  tracked it down but to make a long story short it was later  supposedly crushed. I'm told it is one of one and every time I see Gary he rubs it in. I have recently been told it may [in some way] still exist and be  in the St. Catherines area . Time will tell.    In 1966 I bought a 66 Acadian 2 door sedan [ Canadian version of the Chevy 2]  dark green from Glencoe Chevrolet a small rural town in Ontario It was a L79 327 350 h.p. with a 3 speed on the column. They couldn't get rid of it because of the 3 speed. I had a 4 speed in it  within weeks of buying it and with some other small changes became a 12.7 sec. car. It was crashed and became a 427 straight axle car with buzzed rear wheel wells. I'm told it ended up in the Hamilton Ont. area [around 1968] but have never been able to trace it.
