You can do it, but it will take some fiddling to get the coordinates right:

 # Do a generic plot

 # Get the current plot region axis ranges  # x1, x2, y1, y2
 [1] 0.64 10.36 0.64 10.36

 # Draw a vertical line in the right hand margin
 # Set 'xpd = TRUE' so that plotting is not
 # clipped at the plot region boundary

 segments(10.75, 4, 10.75, 6, xpd = TRUE)

See ?par for more information.
