Condition not that important, but having the unique RHD parts is. 1921 MY preferred, but not critical.

Ralph, there is a 26-7 roadster advertised for sale in our latest club magazine. Au$16000 price would be approx US$11500. I don't have any idea on shipping charges to the US.

It would be far cheaper to convert a US car using the correct RHD parts from Australia.

Allan from down under.

Hi Allan,
Thanks for the reply. I have a Canadian pickup box that's for a 19-22 roadster, so that's why that vintage car. Really, if I could find a roadster body with the opening left door, I could probably do what you suggest. I do have a few bits of RHD parts, courtesy of Mark Herdman, so I don't need everything - but close to it.

Ralph, if you decide to buy a car or body from Australia let me know as I'm looking for someone to share a container to the USA with.

I don't think all of Canada was right hand drive in that time period. Please take no offense to this, but unless you start with a whole car or live where right hand drive is common in your country, I would walk away from the direction you want to take your project. I worked on one that was being put together from bits and pieces and it was a lot more work then fun. It's a lot more involved then just having a hogs head to start with and maybe a couple of other pieces.

Hi Mark,
From what I understand, the eastern and western provinces were RHD, the heartland was LHD. Later, of course, that changed to all LHD. Please, someone far more versed in Canadian driving history set us straight.

Hi Rob,
I thought that car was long gone. Let me get my ducks in a row and I'll be contacting John. Thank you!

Hi Ralph
I'm in British Columbia and we had RHD T's until the late teens. I believe the only other province to do that was Nova Scotia. The rest of Canada was always LHD. I have both left hand and right hand Canadian Model T's. Lots of fun remembering which lever does what when I switch cars. I've never run across a starter RHD hogshead out hear so I think by 1919 Ford was giving us LHD only.
Ken
