Greetings from Downunder


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone and thanks for allowing me to join. I'm new to the Mustang scene, although I do also have a 1965 Falcon hardtop...

My mustang is a 1972 convertible running a 460 and C6 transmission. It was restored in the 1990s from what I can find out. I started with a plan to tidy up some of the interior and now have the whole dash out and am finding all kinds of interesting things that need attention. 

This is a RHD car and some corners appear to have been 'shaved' in the process...

I'm am going to convert the 3 centre guages to 52mm VDO units as the factory ones don't work. I've ground the bezels so they now face straight back and not to the left, which will be good. The dash wiring will get a tidy as well as a new ignition switch and set of barrels and keys, plus a new steering wheel...

Needless to say, she went like a scalded cat before I started down this road, and this is going to take a little longer than expected, in best restoration takes!

Hello and a warm welcome from SW Ontario, Canada. 

These cars were never meant to be RHD, so that alone must have been quite a job for 'somebody'. I think we'd love to see some detail pics of that little conversion.

All the best with it and enjoy the journey.

Geoff.

Welcome from North Carolina. I can't imagine switching one over to R.H. drive. My son got a job at BMW because he had driven RHD and manual while we were in Africa. Turn signals are hard to get use to on opposite side of the column. You turn the wipers on a lot to start.

When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??:P
