Both the Surferoo and the Surfsider were XB's.

Surferoo was kitted out in the back still (carpet, curtains, ice box and rear interior fluoro light) but lacked the pop-top and sliding side windows that the Surfsider had.

Chase cars and 351 GL's, how many made?.

I'm thinking that when an order came in from the Government for the XD Police cars it would have been a list, that would have panned out as a production run, maybe 20 of one combo, like GL's with S Packs and 351 Manuals, so may be a fair chance we can list any VIN's of the ones that we know exist and figure out the month for them?, then the auto's may have been straight after the manuals (or not, might have been months later or at another plant) then the paddy wagon 6 cylinders etc etc in any order really. Potential there to pin down when they did runs of certain combos for the XD and XE V8 chase cars so we can help ascertain Police specials aside from "normal" 351 cars.

Mines August 1981 but I can't figure out for certain if it was ever a government/police car, probably doesn't have the option code for cop car.
