Got a RHD dash!!! (Still need a RHD power steering control valve though)


After more than a decade of on and off searching, missing one in NZ, one in Aus. and two in L.A., I finally found one in Oxfordshire !

 As you can see the bit I need most, the right hand side, cleaned up nicely and has very minimal pitting for a fifty year old part.   (I will of course clean the rest of it and replace the Chevy script with my Parisienne one)

The radio delete plate is unique to the RHD Chevrolets and is also very well preserved, except for the painted panel.   I shan't need it though as I won a near perfect original radio on ebay last October at a bargain price from a seller in Vancouver (albeit the one in Washington State).

 I now have spare gauges and a spare clock too.

 Thanks to all those members who tried to help and Happy New Year.

Well good for you. And we think we have it tough trying to find parts in Canada for our cars, your choices are even a whole lot slimmer. Happy New Year to you also.
