Many cars that got imported to the US left the brake booster on the right side of the car and connected it to the brake pedal with a long shaft that transversed the car (e.g. Sunbeam). Heck, there's a RHD converted C3 Corvette where that is how they got brakes on the other side of the car...
                        That would have worked, you're thinking from another direction as I'm sure Al was thinking he had to work around the booster because that's where they belong.

                        There is another option, in the mid 60's the Holdens that came with boosted brakes had a remote booster, a VH44 was the PBR part.
                        However the do make under the hood look cluttered.

                            Yes, my guess is Al left it to the owner to do so Al wouldn't feel bad about how it turned out if he did it.
