Looks decent.

What do all of you think about the right hand drive conversions on these vehicles? Should it be done (properly) or should the vehicles be kept left hand drive? (not talking about 100% authentic restoration projects)

At least R100k over priced in my opinion. I think the conversion makes the car much more usable in SA so its a positive.....if done properly.

If it was converted it was a ‘recent’ import. So not by choice but by law.
The Mustang 1st Gen is probably the easiest car to convert due to the Dash symmetry.
1973 was my Birth year, sadly post 71 there are not many Musclecars I like.... and in 71 there’s only 2 or 3

Personally, I feel doing a RHD conversion on a classic is bastardising it. Of course, it is more ‘practical’ but I have driven LHDs on our roads and don’t feel like I’m taking any chances iro safety - I actually have to think hard if I have ever heard of a confirmed accident caused by a classic LHD.

It's not a recent import and it's too expensive .... Guys in Jhb are licensing lhd cars all the time ...
