I Built an XE 351 wagon about 10 years ago.
Spent a fair bit of time and money on it.
The engine was based on an XB 302 block.
Currently have an XD 'LTD black block' 351 just waiting to be inserted into it's new Ute home.
Don't think there was too much difference, if any between XD and XE Cleveland V8's. (RIP)
I reckon you'd be very lucky to find an original, unmodified one in any shape or form now.
Street Machine magazine killed an original XE ESP 351, 4 speed sedan some years ago.
Sad part about it all is that there were only ever 178 351 V8, 4 speed equiped ESP Ghia's made.
Now THAT'S rare.........
Original XD 351 Ute - I got one!!
HSV - I just don't want one....EVER!
My XF 3 on the tree ute is ALWAYS stuck in third......
