Is the whole LHD vs RHD merely a preference? Or are parts harder to source for RHD?

I've been driving RHD for awhile and don't mind it all! There are two hassles: Drive-throughs and trying to pass a big truck.
1. - Not that big of a deal - reach across and grab your 6 dollar latte
2. - HJ's aren't really speed demons anyway so passing almost never really "has" to happen.

That parts are pretty much interchangeable with the exception of stuff like the dash pad or steering box.

Why #2?

I have been looking for a good LHD HJ61 for a couple of years now and I contacted Abe when his came up. It is truly a rare bird here in the states, but I steered clear because of the rust. The listing owner on CL did not mention anything about it, and it is possible that he fixed it, but the gutters were in pretty bad shape. Abe was very upfront about the condition and sent several pictures. I have attached them here for anybody who is interested. I am not intentionally bashing the new owner or Abe, but I feel like the current ad is missing some important information.

Cheers
