Mirror Image: Aussie Converts 1964 Corvette to Righthand Drive

1964 RightHand Drive Corvette

Vette Magazine has a great feature about this 1964 Corvette barn car. What’s unique about the story is that the barn (and car) was located in Australia. Peter Bowen, a finance broker in Toowoomba, Queensland went to buy a ’67 Camaro, but it was full of rust. Then he saw the distinctive shape of the 1964 Corvette and negotiated the sale over the course of several weeks.

Bowen had the Corvette converted to righthand drive by Corvette Queensland, a company that specializes in LHD to RHD conversions. With the interior flipped to RHD as well, it almost gives you the sensation of looking into a mirror. The Corvette underwent a body-off restoration that took some six years to complete, but as you can tell from the photo it was worth the wait.
