XR8 250 Pursuit Ute

Hi all,
I have recently purchased my dream car (2002 XR8 250 Pursuit Ute) and am very impressed with it.
I am trying to find out how many were actually built?
I get varying responses (nothing from Ford Aust.)
Can anyone enlighten me?

Re: XR8 250 Pursuit Ute

People will tell you that there were 250 made but I believe it was actually only 248. The early build ones were done without lash caps or oscillators on the exhaust valves and tend to break valve springs once in a while, if it does its pretty cheap to replace the whole set with Crow units that are slightly uprated by a poofteenth and this works well. (Crow made the originals to spec for Yella terra) So are we talking manual or auto.
