Any RHD Eagles out there?

Anybody know of any RHD Eagles out there? Always wondered if any were made and if so how popular they were.

I knew of two postal service mail carriers, for rural ND and MN and they had modifications done for the passenger side in order for them to drive the postal route. As far as I know, I haven't seen a RHD Eagle.

Just found this on the other AMC site, it's a 4 door '78 Concord. I'm sure all the parts could swap over.

They had them in OZ but I'm not sure if they were RHD or not. Wouldn't be hard to make though.
