Are there pictures of the interiors on any of these? I can see the steering wheel through the back window, but there are no interior pictures! I've never seen a legit right hand drive Monte.. or any 73-77 A Body.

Of course they wouldn't need R/H drive in Australia, the UK, Japan etc, if they would have done it right !Very Happy 
I believe it started in England...(?) along with Wentworth wrenches !Very Happy

I heard somewhere it goes back to the jousting days -- they ran down the left side so they could use their stronger right arm to unseat their opponent. Don't know how much truth there is to that, though.

Looks like they just converted them to RHD, at least that's the way it looks from the underside pic. You can see how they moved the steering box to the other side, it probably was more work to move the M/C than it was to just run linkage under the dash over to it. That's the way I've seen converted cars for postal use. I would like to see the dash as well.
