I believe production ceased December 2000, so there should be a few still after yours

I thought VS ended in September as VU we’re ready for sale in early December. I know there were no V8 VS at all and only 2 V6 manual left at Xmas 2000 as I bought one.

I wonder what the last casting date of our last casting of our 5.0L V8 was, of the block and heads ever cast that ended of our V8. the last assembled date is the last week of June 1999. So the blocks may of stoped being cast in the end of May 99 maybe or maybe mid June ?

But if this car was 22/8/2000 the engine would not mean that it was the last engine made or built as they stock piled them all up, just that it looks like this cars engine must of been hiding out for some months somewhere and they said toss it in. but then again they had stocks of such engines crates that you could by after 22/8/2000.

I bought my V8 VS ute on late Nov 1999 I think and I could not option one up to the 195KW as they said that all them engines were used up by then.
I bought that 5.0L ute because I had driven the VT Gen3 5.7L and was shocked at the lack of down low torque that they had.
