Saw this on a local car forum & had to share it. From the gear lever & steering wheel it's a Frod.

I wonder what the engineering side is like...........

Interesting conversion. Wondering why though; I thought you guys drove on the proper side of the road.

I want to convert an old Falcon to right hand drive, I think I can pick up all the needed components off Ebay Aussie, just do not know if people will ship over seas or not.

Imagine a car thief stealing it! Or the owner, tipsy after spending the night out "with the lads!" That is hilarious.

Why do you want to do that Sam?
I drove a LHD Ford once and out of sheer habit put my left arm out of the window for the bloody gearshift!!!!!!!!!!

Like Skid, I noticed that this thing looked like it was abandoned, Lot of effort to end up in a salvage yard.
I about wet myself when I got to Webbys post !

Apparently, the pedals are easier to move than the steering. Here in the U.S. high school Drivers' Ed. cars had the rod across with dual pedals for instructor to take over when students got in trouble. Here the postal vehicles use right hand drive, maybe we could import folks who "drive on the proper side " of the road.

The Jeep in Webby's picture (Cherokee I believe) is what some rural Postal Routes use. These are easy conversions to do like this until Subaru stepped up and offered the RHD Outbacks to the US Postal. Gotta remember some places here in the US are on a tighter budget than others so they use and convert Jeeps as well as other vehicles to their needs. As for the first Picture. I want to guess that's a Mustang II or T5 Ghia that someone has a go at. LoL Too funny the lengths some will go through.

WHICH END DRIVE..........Had to toss this in, old Dodge custom? was created over 40 years ago. The body work is flawless, the only way I could figure which was the rear was the license plate expiry sticker (has to be displayed on rear).






Cheers Eh!
