The last coupe was the xc which the remaining shells were made into cobras to try and get rid of them

You could try ring any limousine building company. A company in Melbourne called Spanmor Limousines built a handful of XE coupes based the Fairmont Ghia.

Street Machine did a sketch of an XE 2 door. Look similar to that Red XE, however the back window and c pillar was slightly raked to give a more fastback look and the roof was choped slightly.
I think the roof needs to be choped if one was to be done.

The company that did these was called "Chapel Conversions".

I last saw a burnt orange ESP two door in South Yarra in the Toorak Village approx 18 months ago. Had personalised plates and would have been a local car. The years had not been kind to it.

Of course its possible to make your own, but who could be bothered. There is so much fabrication involved you would have to be a very skilled "allrounder" to see it through to completion. Also getting custom glass made up is quite expensive.

One of the nicer body mods i've seen recently, and more commonly in Geelong, is utes with the side windows removed and plated over. I think it gives the utes a much cleaner look. There is one in particular was silver and may have been owned by a panel shop. Have also seen a blue one down there. If i change to a ute, as i've often considered, i'd definately do that mod.
