I read that all early Italian cars were RHD because the road surfaces were so poor, particularly near the gutters, that RHD was an advantage.
I guess coachmen - who could sit on either side - were also in the habit of sitting on the right for easier alighting. The habit probably carried over into early cars.
But I doubt a post war car would be subject to this philosophy.
