Hi, I have the same car and removed all trims before i repainted the car las year.

Yes they list as a LH and RH, the only difference is where the bleeder screw goes, all you do is order 2 of same side of what stock they have, take out bleeder and small brass feral that sits in hole where brake line goes in and switch around, it worked for me, calipers are identical both sides.
The parts for Bud disc brakes are hard to find and expensive as i found out recently.

I have nearly completed my restoration of the factory Budd brakes on my 68 Chrysler New Yorker, I have fitted a nice pair of used rotors, rebuilt my bottom ball joints so it is nearly done.
I ordered a pair of reconditioned Budd calipers from Summit Racing, i received the Left side caliper...
I have been going through the same problems with the Budd system on my 68 New Yorker.
My rotors were worn under size, and one had deep grooves from someone running out of pads at some point.
My calipers were a mess, pitted bores and the brakes hanging on but not leaking.
