Howdy from Phoenix. That is a great story! Are you going to leave it right hand drive? Post some pics of the interior when you get a chance. I would love to see how 'weird' it looks.

Welcome from Oklahoma. Nice car - cool story! I road-raced mine a little but only at local open track Shelby Club events.

Sure was fun!

Just looking at your RH cluster and wondering what you have on the right (Switch?

Did you build the dash or was it done prior to your ownership?

I have all the bezels coming from Don at Ohio Mustang Parts but it is still going to

be an issue to make it look factory fitted in RH format.

Keep in touch.
