    Thank you Bruce.

    Yes, here the steering is on the right, we also drive on the other side of the road!

    Thanks for the pictures! I don't think I've ever even seen a picture of a right hand drive 57 chevy truck. I have seen the information about how they were built in the Factory Assembly Manual.

    Thanks!

    No problem on the pictures, just say if you would like some more, would have to take them and add. There is really little info on the web about old cars that was made for right hand drive countries, VIN, where they were made, how many etc, etc.

    I'd like to see the dashboard! And the pedals. Also, under the hood, looking straight at it from the front.

    There's very little info about them anywhere, not much to put on the web.

    I'm impressed also. And like Squirrel, I've never seen a RHD P/U truck before. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.
