I'm not associated with any of the following. I was actually looking for a RHD drive VW beetle in the US (like the NZ/Aus/UK steering wheel configuration).

I came across a beautiful 1952 MG YB, begging to be restored for NZ $5,000

1965 Ford Mustang for NZ $83,000 (US $60,000). Ready to drive

You should be able to talk them down, since it would not be popular in the US (more of an oddity).

I'd suggest an opening offering of US $30,000, and take US $40,000. (NZ $56,000)

Anyhow, too rich for my blood

Lots of circa 1970's and 1980's mini-coopers for sale starting at US $10,000

I'd guess it would cost about $3,000 to ship any of these, more for cars that don't run. Choose a "Roll-on/roll-off (RORO or ro-ro) ship if possible, because it's more likely to arrive in good shape than a freight container.

Wow, I didn't think they made any of the older Mustangs in RHD. (The current Mustangs were the first to be made RHD ex. factory I thought).


Ah - I see that one is a Custom build.


The Minis make sense. There's probably a few in the UK too.

Yeah, because the 1965 Mustang is a custom build, it won't appeal to collectors.

Also almost all Americans would be afraid to drive a right-hand drive car regularly.

Hence my advice for tough negotiations. Ideal for NZ.

As usual, don't act excited when buying any car. It might be worth getting an American friend to negotiate, and complain frequently about the right-hand-drive steering wheel, and NOT mention it's destined for overseas till the deal's done.

More right hand drive muscle cars, in the US, in particular Mustangs

Desert Classic Mustangs

A good number of right-hand drive cars from 1966 onwards, plus conversion parts.
