rhd produced?

Asked by Jan 04, 2007 at 12:01 AM about the 1961 Chevrolet Corvette

Question type: General

Saw a fashion magazine photo on display in a Museum which told how and when the picture was taken, and that the car was a 1961 corvette.
The model pictured in the driver's seat was in a corvette, but it was a RHD configuration.  Is this possible?

Hello Gary- Chevrolet has never made a right hand drive Corvette. That picture you saw was either a mirror image or the car was a conversion. GM threatens a RHD one of these days for places like the British Isles, Japan and Australia, but none have been produced yet. Good luck from Bovan.


If the photo mistakenly got printed in the reverse and is a close up picture check for reverse type, she may be sitting in a ettevroC.


I have seen RHD Corvettes in Australia, but the did not come from the factory like that. Some lucky blokes are getting rich doing conversions on cars so the Aussies and English can drive them on their islands.

I looked at and drove a 61 corvette right hand drive in Kuala Lumpur... If it wasn't original that way I sure could not tell... The car had paperwork from original delivery.
