Oddball CP Air DC-8-63 CF-CPL?

Does anyone have any information on why CP Air acquired CF-CPL in 1972 from Eastern?

Did this aircraft have a different cabin configuration, and was it used on specific routes? I’m particularly interested to know if it was used on the South Pacific route to SYD via HNL/NAN?
