I see this is a RHD. My mailman drives a RHD vehicle. I bet if he would use this car to deliver the mail our mail would be delivered faster AND our mailman would be a lot happier. Beautiful car. The RHD sure makes it look a lot different from my grandmother's 57. The fenderskirts truly enhance that long low body line. I see the windshield visor as well. Very nice pics, beautiful car.

It's a colour original to the year – Highland Green. It was not very popular back in the day, and when ordered usually was in the two-tone combination with the lighter coloured Surf Green roof.

How long have you had it? Do you know its history?

Many years – I bought it as a youngster and restored it.

No real history came with the car. It had been a Saturday night special, mildly modified – but came less motor and trans. Still had a black tuck roll interior, although was in a tired state even for then, which was 1986.

I'd always heard that the Australian '57's used the dashboard of the '56's as it was easier to use with the RHD. This is the first I'd ever seen one. Very nice car John. 34mc564204ba

Yes, a lot of work re-tooling that 57 dash to RHD, and for only about 5000 cars. Just ask anyone doing a conversion on one these days!
