Namibia was a German colony until after WW1, when it came under South African rule until independence in 1990.
Most of the trucks are American. The Ford Zephyr saloon (sedan) is a Mk 2, built in Dagenham, England, between 1956 & 1962. The other British RHD saloon is BMC "Farina", probably an Austin A60 Cambridge or a Morris Oxford, built in the 1960s. The Morris Eight Tourer is a series 1, built between 1934 & 1938.

…..You can find Moose McGregor on the internet. He was a pastry chef known (to tourists and locals) for his apple strudel. He loved the isolation and the incredible views of the stars at night. He passed away in Solitaire after experiencing shortness of breath while his friends tried to get him to the hospital…..

Vehicles in order. Some are impossible to tell without grills but others are pretty straight forward. Virtually all are USA vehicles but some have subtle differences that makes me think they were made in non US factories(Australia?)
1956 Ford Pickup
1939 Hudson 112
1930ish Fordson tractor
1958ish Ford Zephyr
1959 Ford Pickup (not USA made, Australia maybe?)
1950ish Chevrolet 1-2ton Truck
1952 Ford 1-2ton Truck
1960-70ish Mercedes Benz
1920's Ford Model T
1935ish Morris Minor 8

Yes America made many cars right hand drive for Africa including in order Ford F1, Hudson, zepher (Ford made), chevy truck without bed sides, and other truck's, Mercedes. Then a ford truck. Flatbed straight six, finally the morris is European.

The Hudson was manufactured from 1909 until 1954. When I was 5 my father, mother, and myself drove to Detroit, Michigan just before WWII to pick up a new '40 or '41 at the Hudson factory. It was the only new car my dad purchased during his 96 year lifetime. He got it in his favorite color, maroon.

The cars and trucks you showed us, are American.
Right hand drive is made, for those vehicles made for those markets that drive on the left side of the road. I grew up with these vehicles. That engine in that truck, was a straight 6 cylinder. Morris is related to the current Mini Cooper. Morris Minor is part of the Morris name. World wide, hundreds of different types and models by different automotive companies are made, in many different countries. Motorcycles, now, are also made in different countries by different motorcycle companies. In the USA, we have vehicles, that other countries have. Just different names. And all countries, have some vehicles, that May not be seen in other countries. Example, VW and Mercedes make many different models of cars, trucks, SUV, etc that are not seen here in the USA. Or at least not in the mainstream. And ditto elsewhere. Ditto for all the other vehicle companies.
Left and right hand drive is made for the market, that certain vehicle is headed for, 99% of the time. Exceptions do happen. Hope this helps. Watch other videos on YouTube, where they are from other countries.

WH, thank you for going there. I will never be able to do something like that. I will do what I can to give you some financial support. Keep exploring and letting us live your experience with you.

Most of the old trucks were Fords, there were made right hand drive for European, Australian… Market. One car near the beginning was a Studebaker. Most of the cars were American as well.

Really enjoyed this video and the whole safari. I swear you have the cutest smile Hussy.

Mike sarky · May 30, 2019 at 10:54 am

Morris is an English brand of car and one of the original makers of the Mini Cooper

Waltzing Matilda · May 30, 2019 at 10:54 am

All the cars are American made right hand drive including the Fordson tractor. The Hudson was a fairly fancy car that is also American. The old truck was an old Ford. The Morris is also American.

The 1 ton flat bed is a 1935 Chevrolet with a rare 207 OHV engine . The car with stubby fins I think is Russian. The convertible I want to say Morgan but the knock offs suggest  Audi  . The Fordson tractor came from Ireland. The Fords from South America The prize is the Hudson ….. WHY ? Where else are you going to take them ?

JoJo-n-LoLo Carver · May 30, 2019 at 10:54 am

Great video. Nice to see a bit of American nostalgia, righthand drive, parked way out in Africa's Route 66.

harley dude · May 30, 2019 at 10:54 am

The blue cab only truck is a 1953 to 1955 ford F100, with right hand drive, it was more then likely made for export but I don't think it was made in the states, maybe Australia.

Pat B · May 30, 2019 at 10:54 am

Watch the first cars movie the old car is a hudson. Fordson is ford and made in multiple places for a while. USA manufactures built vehicles in other countries and also built right habd drive to export and some for mail delivery.. Ford was in the UK and sent vehicles to all there territories, that zephyr is UK..

R. Blakehole · May 30, 2019 at 10:54 am

Hudson was a very good old American make. My Dad was given a 1948 Hudson Commodore 8 sedan by my Grandfather. My dad drove that vehicle all over the Western United States when he was a traveling salesman. He put 3 or 4 hundred thousand miles on that car.

GREGORY SMITH · May 30, 2019 at 10:54 am

That motorcycle not that ancient because it had front disc brakes.

Klaatu Gort · May 30, 2019 at 10:54 am
