Yeah thats what I reckon too, certainly different...im thinking the EB front would look best
Apparently Ford had to weld 3/4's of the ED guard to 1/4 of the XF guard for the front to suit the doors. Going by pictures, the XH ute doors look a little different to the XG doors so that they suit the shape of the EF guards better I guess. So a little welding would be required but does anyone know how easily the EB front would bolt onto the XG sub-frame otherwise?
Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

Some queensland(?) guys made a ute out of a EA CFI wagon. looked real good. Didnt look like the one in six_in_a_row's post but, in my opinion it looked better(not that the otherone looks bad).
Think it was the same people who used to make the AU falcons into coupes.
1st car EA Fairmont Ghia, extractors, exhaust
2nd EF GLi, 'custom' interior, extractors, exhuast
3rd EA Fairmont 5spd, low'd, extractors, exhuast, head
work, 3.45LSD, EL dash, interior+ El ECU
4th EB2 Fairmont, EL dash and interior, BBM, LSD etc etc
5th EB Fairmont Ghia 5L. All leather, lowered, exhaust etc
The XH ute didn't have unique doors, but had a variety of minor mods over the XG so the EF front end didn't look out of place. The various unique front panels are not interchangable with the EF sedan, though I suppose the front bumper and headlights would be. In short, making an EB ute would be a big job, but as with any unique car, the rewards would be there.
