I had a feeling that the speedo was the same for a 412 as many of the previous models. But a search in Holdens on line may have a Smiths Speedo like yours in stock. Apologies if I have misled you.

Speedometer for 412

Have you tried Holdens or any of the number of Speedo advertisers in the classic car magazines. The spares handbook will give you the Smiths number.
Also try BODA.
