Re: AU Build dates ???

Do you know of any sites that have info about this.
Like when did the EL end and the AU start.
Is there 1998 EL and 1998 AU XR8 around.

I know of one AU XR8 build date 12/98. Is this one of the first ones released ?

Re: AU Build dates ???

If I can remember correctly August 1998 was the cross over point from EL to AU. There were XR6's from this time and I do believe the XR8 was also released at this time.
My XR6 is a Nov 98 build, Kooky's is an August one I think.

Re: AU Build dates ???

I have an AU V8 Fairmont Ghia with 09/1998 plates. I wouldn't have expected they'd have run V8 Fairmont Ghias of a brand new shape off the line so soon. Outside chance I know but how would I go about finding out if it was (or wasn't) the very first V8 Fairmont Ghia made.
