Default New AU XR8 owner

Hi All,
I have just picked up a 01' XR8 ute and trying to verify exactly what i have as reading all sorts of conflicting stuff on the interwebs! (who would have guessed??)
Ute has three prior owners and a what looks like a traceable history, with dealer sales documents, and bits and pieces (have not gone through it all yet.
It was a local Melbourne car and someone may even know of it
so far paperwork says it is a 200KW 5 speed XR, Galaxy Blue with Leather trim- does that sound right for a 04/2001 build? it also has just over 155K klm on the clock.
is there somewhere to decode the Vin etc and find otu for sure??
Many thanks
M@

Phone 13-FORD, they can decode the vin for you, and if you strike the right person they can be very helpful. Sounds correct though, from memory AU XR8 utes got 200kw from April 2001, Sedans got 220kw from late May 2001.
