D17 with power director on left side?

I'm looking at a "59" model D17 that has a side mount 9' sickle mower on it. What really threw me off was that the power director lever was on the left side. This is the first of any of the D series tractors I've seen with this setup. Is this something rare, maybe an option used in conjunction with this style of mower, possibly a mechanic with a bad sense of direction. Any info on this would be appreciated. Thanks Eddie

The hand clutch lever could be installed on the left side if you were so inclined to do so, just by swaping ends with the shifter fork shaft. The detent quadrant and shift lever stop adjustment screw would require holes be drilled and tapped
to mount them to the torq housing.

From what I have read in my manual and have heard others talk about it sounds like a shuttle shift.

the power director on the left side is a shuttle clutch, used on the industrial model 17's.

I've managed to get a little more history on this tractor. I've been told the original owner was paralyzed on his right side, and in agreement to purchase the tractor , made an agreement with AC to have the dealer swap the hi-lo to the left side. I haven't had the chance to drive the tractor yet to see how it operates, but the current owner says it's not a shuttle shift.The tractor shows no signs of ever being the industrial yellow, and is equipped with the liftarms and single remote.
