But its these decisions that keep the motivation high. A hard choice though!
Thanks for the photos and progress reports, keep them coming.

Hi John

Ivory was listed as a colour choice in '57.

I'll second GTD's approach - start collecting cars to paint different colours........ works for me.

Why settle? Do both red and silver. Check out this thread....

John, I realise your post is from 2007, but have only now come across it. Did you ever get the info you needed? My early 1963 101-series Sprint was first sold to Rudds, who converted it to RHD (it carries the Ruddspeed plate 158.RD). The conversion is quite professional, with two uni joints in the steering column, a cast aluminium shroud holding the top (steering wheel) end of the column to the bulkhead/firewall, and a moulded fibreglass RHD dash top. So far I haven't found anyone else with a similar dash top - they all seem to be metal cut&shut jobs. Mine may be special because the car was one of only two to have the prefix AR*38xxx rather than the standard AR*35xxx as its chassis number - speculated to be the prototype for a larger RHD conversion program.
Cheers, Geoff
