Such was the case with The Supercar Club's launch of the newest addition to their fleet, the awesome Ford GT - in right hand drive - at their showroom in Richmond, Victoria. Club members, enthusiasts and invited guests pored over the sleek beast, marvelling at the faultless RHD switch by CrossOver Conversions. Much more than just a steering swap, the Crossover Conversion covered detail items like windscreen wiper cutouts, repositioned fuel cap (pictured), and adjusted mirrors and pedals. With the GTs mid-mounted engine, you'd think the RHD conversion would be easy, right? Wrong! CrossOver told us it's one of the hardest jobs they've done, requiring the manufacture or conversion of 300 separate parts - far more complicated than the late model Mustangs that are their usual stock in trade.
The Supercar Club's James Ward was overwhelmed by the guest's reaction to the GT and expects the 550hp beast to be booked out for some time! A reminder of the new GT's origins was present in the form of a Roaring Forties GT40 (one of the better GT40 replicas going around), which shared the floor with an RHD Shelby Super Snake Mustang and latest model Chevy Corvette Z06, also converted by CrossOver.
