Shift patterns are the same.

I guess the handbrake lever has been shifted too. Nice conversion really.

Ok .Kinda weird they put the handbrake on the passenger side of the console for left hand drive cars but i guess they have a reason.

Maybe if you start driving too fast then the wife can pull the brake on

Re: Australian Delivery Mustang SVT Cobra...

so what's the deal with the 4 fog lights and side markers?
The headlights switch is custom (it's more of a knob on the US ones).
I would import a (U.S. driver's seat) for the passenger side so they can both be electric.
There is a huge aftermarket for mustangs, I'm surprised the owner kept it stock.
Looks like an 01 to me. The U.S. ones came with an SVT badge on the back and different centercaps on the wheels.
One thing I'm surprised about is that they didn't move the hood popper over to the driver's side. That's gotta be inconvenient.
I kinda wish they did a real mirror of the dash though. The right side of the dash is smaller and I'm actually surprised that they fit the gauge pod in there. The fabricated piece made the best out of the space though (with the extra thick border around the air bag piece)
Did they do any parchment colored interior's by any chance?
All in all it looks good. Wish they would bring a high end falcon over to the U.S.

Re: Australian Delivery Mustang SVT Cobra...

Tickford did a great job on those stangs, A lot of work went into shifting the engine over to the left buy 25mm/1" so as to make room for the right hand drive.
The extra lights in the front bar were an ADR requirment.
The motoring mags stated that all Tickford mods had made them a better car than the Stangs in the states, thats pretty high praise for a little ozzy company.
The thing that killed the cars were, the poor interier fit & fitment, & the cost of the change from left to right.
