    No problem with them being LHD and road worthy as they are over 30 years old. As for value.. thats a hard one... I suppose it would depend on the whole package and if there is anything else wrong with it. If you were offered two identical vans - identical in every way except one is LHD and the other is RHD - you would prefer to buy the RHD wouldn't you? hence making the RHD slightly more valuable than the LHD - and not easy to go through Maccas drive thru unless you have a passenger!!! LOL

    Just beware, if you go to look at one make sure it has been regoed in Australia before????
    There has been a few imported from Asia that have had to have a full resto before they could get rego

    Plus your passenger doors are on the wrong side unless you somehow get a double door then the conversion is no problem. There are enough RHD Splits here for sale, just need the right amount of $$$$
