I doubt very much that the XF panels will fit onto an XH. The whole front frame of an XH is more like an EF/EL & is nothing like an XF. Steering & suspension for example are totally different.

If at first you don't succeed, just call it Version 1.0

Dr Terry is dead right. A mate of mine wanted to go the other way and fit an XH front to his XD sedan. Never got done as it was A/ too hard B/ The XD is now worth more as an original V8 Fairmont Ghia.

Finding an XG is a better bet as they are basically an XF with an EB2/ED 4 litre engine fitted & a different grille to identify it as an XG.

FWIW the front sheet metal is a bolt on exchange between any XD XE XF XG or their equivalent Fairlane and LTD variants.
