A ZH Fairlane with electric windows and seats as standard as well as airconditioning. They also have the twin chrome rear view mirros as well as the LTD interior chrome dome lamp fitted.

They were effectively aimed at competing with the Statesman Caprice of the time (Fairlane against the Statesman Deville) and the LTD was supposed to be one step above all other Aus cars.

This is a great collection of information. I've been searching for this info everywhere.
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you ever tried.

All JG33's, JG66's. JG70's, JG71's (and 1978 JH71 + early 1979 JH71) are factory 5.8's. However, just because they left the factory that way, does not mean that they are still 351's. So, as Rusty stated above, there is no guaranteed external way of knowing what an engine is without looking inside.

There are some tricks though: All 4.9's had closed chamber heads and these heads (Aussie) have two small casting knibs at the front of the head. Whereas, the 5.8's (excluding XW/Y GT/GTHO, XA GT and early GT XB manual cars) have open chamber heads. These heads only have 1 small knib cast onto the front of the head. But beware that some people will run closed chamber heads on 351's for extra performance.

If you read through this (about 1/4 the way down), you will see what I mean.
