WE HAVE SET COSTS FOR FACTORY ORDER MODELS AS WE CAN CONTROL THE LOCATION OF ORIGIN. STOCK ORDER CONVERSIONS WILL VARY CONSIDERABLY DUE TO LOCATION VARIANCE.
One of our suppliers over in the states is an automotive company specializing in highly coveted Detroit wheels for customers overseas. RHD USA modifies vintage muscle cars, race cars, and even Hummer Limousines using four-steer drive proprietary right hand drive conversion systems. They specialize however in full-size pick up trucks made in north America being exported to all over the world including little old us here in the UK. Some of the trucks being converted by RHD USA include the Toyota Tundra and the Ford F-150 SVT RAPTOR.
We can arrange for your vehicle to be converted before shipping to the UK. Here you can see a complete new dashboard has been re-designed to accomodate a right hand drive configuration. All the drivers components are moved to the right side of the cab as part of the conversion including the steering wheel, instrument cluster, pedal assembley, safety air bags, buttons switches, wiring, air ducting and plumbing. The passenger-side components are moved to the left side of the cab. You will also have fabricated a new steel firewall to secure items like the brake booster, cable linkage, steering colomn and hvac system.
A brand new Ford F-150 SVT Raptor getting prepped for its right hand drive conversion at RHD USA. Conversions usually take about 6 weeks once the car is in the shop. So you will have to add that to your 6 week shipping time for stock vehicles, and 12 weeks for factory orders. Good things come to those who wait they say.
The CAD drawings our suppliers work to will give you an idea of just how complicated and comprehensive a task this is to undertake. We can not show you any of them as this would divuldge too much information to their competitors, lets just say that they are masters of fine detail and that gives them the edge over others. So we can assure you when AMERICAN IMPORTS.CO.UK and RHD USA work together you are getting world class service.
As well as right hand drive conversion on all types of cars, our suppliers over in the states can modify any or all aspects of the car. It makes sense to buy all the parts and fit them before it is shipped as they are all sourced in North America and our main supplier has been doing this for 30 years. Here you can see A ROUSH Phase 2 Supercharger Kit was installed on the 6.2 litre V8 engine, giving this Raptor 590HP and 590lb of torque - a performance gain of 179HP and 156lb-ft of torque over standard issue.
As well as engine mods you can have anything that is available on the US market installed such as instrumentation, wheels and tyres, Exhaust Systems or entire body lifts and suspension kits. If you want any modifications to your new vehicle we can cost it into the total price so that when it arrives into the UK everything is done to your specification.
As part of our new website and effort to become more informative, we have decided to put together as much price information as possible. So you guys can see approximate ball park figures for conversions on different models of cars. Then you can look at your figures and hopefully give us a call to discuss exactly what it is you are wanting to do.
Remember our family has 45 years in the american car business and what we can't do, Aint worth Doin'!.
