RHD to LHD conversion

Is it possible to convert a 1958 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud from RHD to LHD? Can we get the parts, say the cockpit, in case we can re-engeneer the car ourselves?

    Thanks Dave,

    We were said this convertion was technically impossible. If Flying Spares can supply the parts we are going to make the convertion after some cost considerations. The car needs full restoration. Will contact FS, apreciate your help on this.

    Hi! I have the same problem concerning a 2001 Peugeot 607 2.2 HDI. Can somebody help me, telling me how much the conversion would cost for this car?

    Thanks a lot.

    Hi thank you for this forum.

    I have the same problem with a Cherokee-2003. Unfortunately, I am living in Africa, but would like to know WHO can provide me with all required parts to make this conversion RHD to LHD.

    Kind regards.

    I too have started a full chassis up restoration on a 1958 Silver Cloud 1. As I live in France I would like to convert it to LHD. So am now looking to see if there is such a thing as a conversion kit and what is involved.

A company called Flying Spares in Warwickshire will be able to supply all the parts. I'm not sure if the steering box is part of the subframe assembly on these models, if it is, you'll need a new subframe setup & new stering box, but the rack is reversible I think and the steering column isn't a problem. 01455 292 959. Ask for Ben, tell him Dave Flora gave you the details. Good luck

Need to know the gap on a duel points system

Wow cool car. Unfortunately, only Rolls Royce has that information. I do not know how you cam to own the car or if you own the car but the it is my understanding that the buyer was to sign a contract stating only Rolls Royce is to work on the car. I could be wrong but I have never seen nor heard of a Rolls Royce repair manual offered to the public. And that is the only place I know of that would have the information you seek.

What kind of coolent to use to recharge a/c

it used R12 originally, u can still buy that on ebay if u have a valid HVAC license, otherwise you must convert the system to the new non ozone harming R134A refrigerant, they sell kits to do this conversion at better auto part stores like Napa and Carquest, beware of the cheaper kits.
