steering right side
« on: April 26, 2006, 03:52:42 PM »
Hello,

Does anyone know if  there are Mustangs with the steering wheel at the right side of the car? For example for the Englisch market.

If there are, is there a notification in the VIN number or in the door tag?

Im sure they are right side mustangs but I have never seen any and have never seen anyone mention the vin.  But I think the vin would have a number Im sure that would show england or some were else.

Hoeckie,
           In the U.K. in the 60's, there was a company called RUDDSPEED who specialised in converting Alfa Romeos to right hand drive. When the Mustang began being imported into the U.K. they offered such a conversion by using a Ford Zephyr steering column/box and hydraulic clutch operation. Total cost 250.00 pounds sterling!! I don't think that too many were converted and, as a long time Mustang enthusiast, I have never seen even one. Ford didn't offer right hand drive as an option, which I believe is still the case today on new Mustangs. Any converted car would have retained it's original VIN number.

It also seems that Ford Australia sold 200-250 RHD converted Mustangs in Australia in 1965 and 1966 only and there is the mystery of a right hand drive 1971 Boss 351 Mustang.
