Sorry mate but if you look at the post above your last one he has a HQ graft and I thought you quoted him as he lives in Sydney. I am confused arnt I!

To tell you the truth I dont know if they still allow them in NSW either I hope they both have them sorted out. I was thinking of doing one on my 56 but have since changed my mind as I heard they wouldnt allow them anymore.

Yeah, If I converted mine I would like to use the H series graft. I think its the best way. They are getting hard on all chassis swaps in QLD. Cant even put an early body on a late chassis either.

Chris I would brake down and cry if I had to convert mine. Like my user tag says "Original Pete" I just love the left hand drive surprise when you pull along side people.

I'm pretty sure that they didn't make any Nomads outside of the US so any Nomads will be conversions

I once owned two factory RHD cars , 55 Sedan Delivery and a 55 210 four door

I don't get on here much, living in Japan while my car is in Australia, but Chris pointed me towards it.

My 57 sedan delivery is converted to RHD using factory RHD steering components, and a US dash converted to RHD. Also, a set of NOS reverse lights converted for use as indicators, purchased from Des many moons ago.



I'll dig up a photo of the dash when I get time.

Mine can't be polled either (I don't think anyway). Mine's a factory RHD, but I'm using an aftermarket rack and pinion power steering (once I get it all setup and get the car running). Bought locally here in Adelaide, it even comes with engineering approval paperwork.

I Have a 55 sports coupe I converted to RHD using a toyota crown box and RHD draglink and pitman. Now I have changed to a power rack.

Factory RHD is RHD, no matter what the steering set-up is. Right?
