1972 Mustang Guildford dealer pic in UK
#1
Ran across this old dealer pic from the UK, circa 1972.

Car does not appear to be converted to right-hand drive.  Hard to tell for sure from the pic.

Back in 60's and 70's the Mustang would have remained a left hand drive. There was'nt the appetite from dealers back then. It was the same for Rolls Royce and Bentley your side of the pond. Rolls Royce and Bentley only came in right hand drive and there wasnt the appetite from the dealers to convert to left hand drive

On the R.H. L.H. drive thing.
I have heard that Ford pretty much drove which way they went in the U.S.. Started out in center and Ford went left and because of the numbers of cars he produced forced others to follow. He did not put a door on the drivers side said it was a safety feature so driver would not get out into traffic after parking. It was really a cost reduction to not put the door in.
On the R.H. drive I understand it had something to do with how you drove a horse and buggy in the past that made England go that way. Also something to do with using a whip on the horse.
While I was in Cuba I found I believe a 1907 center steer Cadillac that would be worth a fortune back in the U.S.. Cuba will not let the old cars leave part of their heritage they say.
Neat that the dealer brought in other models.
I go to Africa a lot and after staying there for over 4 months once I came home got in my truck and drove up the road on the wrong side, lol. Would walk up to wrong side to get in also.
My nephew brings R.H. drive cars from Japan and sells here not an issue in U.S.. You do not have to convert just has to be 25 years old or older.
My son got his first job at BMW because he had driven R.H. drive in Africa and straight drive also. His first job was to drive the cars into test booth take to I think 150 mph and then drive out of plant.


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