Newbie from South Africa

Just joined your Forum. I hope to learn a lot from members of this forum. I have a 1964 Chevy Impala SS under restoration and will be posting some questions. I see my fellow South African Gavin is also a member. Gavin is well respected Motor Racing guru in South Africa. He has worked on my other two cars with the greatest satisfaction.

Heita!

I would think that a 64 SS might be a rare site in S Africa. Welcome

Yes indeed it is more so that I had to have the dash changed to RHD. I found a Metal Former who did a splendid job.
The original dash:

I was thinking maybe you guys drive on the wrong side of the road. I bet that conversion isnt cheap.

You are right it was not cheap but it was professionally done. I had to change the dash as you well know that out steering wheel is on the 'RIGHT" side of the car LoL
