They look bloody good mate, i had a look at the right hand drive C6 2 days ago actually, its very much like the original, the only thing i could pick was the dash around the passenger airbag, apart from that they are almost dead on, they had a left hand drive and a right hand drive parked side by side in the showroom.

Thought I'd pay a visit from Malibu. I take it RHD (which we call wRong Hand Drive) is required in Australia? When I get a chance, will post pic of my C6. Meanwhile, nice to meet you.

Very nice to 'meet' you too mate :o

Yes, all cars UNDER 30 years of age, have to by LAW be converted to 'wRong Hand Drive' here, at least thats the law in all states that I know of, I suspect there MAY be a state which doesn't require it, but I can only speak for Queensland.

Exceptions are if you register a LHD vehicle under 'club registration', which is fairly limiting.

To the best of my knowledge, you cant register them left hand drive for club rego either mate, i tried that heaps of times when i had the 87. Western Australia i think you can register them as leftys, but im not sure on the regulations for it all, just know it can be done there... :o

Right Hand Drive - Amazing

Postby c6vert » Fri May 05, 2006 9:20 pm

I'm curious as to how the C6 Vette was converted to right hand drive. Today GM is proposing an early end for the C6 and a sooner then later C7 which would be engineered for left or right hand drive

REALLY??? Wow - That's a revelation! Maybe GM is finally seeing extra market ($$$) potential in exporting RHD versions?

There are a few only companies here in AU that are licenced to convert the C6's (Term is RAWS Certified); but C5's and C6's cost a not-so-small-fortune to get done.

PS; WELCOME to our forum! :o :D

I'm pretty sure you CAN here in QLD, unless they've changed the regs...I stand corrected if I'm wrong - I'm not an authority on this by any means.

Best check QLD Transport website.

...Which takes us BACK to my initial post where I said :

"Yes, all cars UNDER 30 years of age, have to by LAW be converted to 'wRong Hand Drive' here, at least thats the law in all states that I know of, I suspect there MAY be a state which doesn't require it, but I can only speak for Queensland."

Sorry if I was not clear enough; I was meaning cars 30+ years old can be club registered. :D
