The round gauge pod was first offered on the NADA 3500S and later was 
standard on the Series II cars in all markets. I don't recall if the pod 
was "handed" right or left on the NADA cars, but they would have had RHD 
pods ready for introduction by the time these cars were made, I guess.

I might have thought there would be issues about component placement in 
making a fully-optioned car in RHD. Those NADA 3500S's are really tight 
under the bonnet.
