From discussions with Barry Sly in the UK we believe approximately 100 Cords in total were built as RHD cars. The figure includes 810 as well as 812 Cords. About 50 RHD Cords went to the UK, about 18 went to South Africa, about 12 went to Australia so that accounts for 80. The Hand Built Cords were done in a batch of 100 so that seems to tie in with ordering parts in batches of 100.
Hopefully I have answered your question. You could also check the lists at the back of Cord Complete or check with Ron Irwin.

Hi Terry thanks for that. Somewhat surprised as the 812 that was displayed at Beaulieu Motor Museum for forty years was noted as being one of only four ever built (and its one of the South African ones!) So I wonder where the rest are? Will do some more research.

I suggest that you contact Barry Sly his email address is, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
There is a dark blue s/c RHD Westchester here in Australia that was originally sold in the UK.
There is also a yellow RHD phaeton here in Australia that survived the Blitz with a bomb fragment that went through the sump
Another one that was in the UK went to Iceland during WW2
A few were bought by American servicemen during WW2 and taken back to the US.
I bought a RHD bell housing from a member in Florida who had purchased the car in the UK and shipped it back to America and converted it to RHD. They do move around.
