    Nice weekend's work

    I reckon around $100K to $150k for the restoration depending on how much metal work the buyer can do themselves. Perhaps indicative of the curly perceived value of Australian-delivered RHD 356s? Not for the faint hearted or the untalented. I suspect it may go to the UK anyway.

    There is no gearbox/transaxle. The owner of this T5 tells me it was in similar condition when he got it. Now it is superb. He is a machinist and decent welder however. fallout 3 vengeance location

    I suspect that in the UK this car would be viewed differently.

    It IS matching numbers but not a 90, they now say. A huge amount of work for someone. Adam Wright suggests it is fair value for a RHD car. 😮Not sure I would even think about it.

    Hand Throttle mechanism

    The hand throttle is all done and it works perfectly. However be warned - SM and other parts are the wrong length in the cable. All are for LHD and shorter! You need to extend the Bowden tube or buy a cable yourself and fit it. I did the extension.

    Nooo. That was how Jim Clark was killed. Cable operated throttle on the dash.

    Thanks for this. I now have some RHD images from the UK. As suspected they are a mirror image in terms of switch position of the LHD ones (above) and in the RHD cars the hand throttle/fast idle switch is between the taco and combo gauge for the BT6

    All the pieces seem to be coming together. I would love to see a photo of the dash position for the B hand throttle knob?

    Hand Throttle mechanism

    My BT6 just missed our by 200 cars on the previously standard hand throttle mechanism. Thinking I would like to fit one. If there is one around that I could restore or use directly, I would be most interested. EDIT: I have luckily found one. However I still need the cable and knob is any around? Thanks Merv
