twin SU on v8 ..choke position query.

my car is an series 2 auto V8 1974 with choke operating cable /connections /linkage on nearside . having visited a car show at Shotley ,east anglia I looked under a bonnet of a series 2 v8 manual 1973 and noticed the choke cable /linkage was on off side carb ? accelerator set up being same minus extra cable to auto gearbox. I am now at a los as to who's car is correct? are there 2 locations for choke? seems improbable rover would do that!
