I've only just picked up your message - finally got around to resetting my password tonight after a month of reminders.
Re the dashboard, I found that several of the Ruddspeed-converted Sprints used the fibreglass dash top. It appears mine was the first. Over the past year I wrote a series of articles about my Sprint and the Ruddspeed conversions for the Giuliettaletta (Giulietta Register quarterly mag - not sure if you're a member?), as it seems my Sprint is one of two factory RHD prototypes, and that Rudds were involved sourcing the dashboard top.
As far as I can tell from old magazine articles, your car was LHD when it arrived and stayed that way for an unknown time. It would be interesting to know who did the conversion, and when. Mildrens had some cars converted by Rudds before importation here.
Hi John my name is John also I live in north Brisbane and I'd love to see your car in the flesh so to speak.
I have a couple of toys of my own I could show off too.
My number is 0409480331 if you want to call.
Do you still have your 101 Sprint? If so, do you know whether the top of the dashboard is fibreglass, or the original metal, cut & rewelded? I found that mine (Ruddspeed-converted, early '63) has a molded fibreglass dash top, and have posted to the BB to see if anyone else has similar, but no replies so far.
