e00 to Shapefile

I have over a 100 e00 files which I would like to convert to shapefile.

I know I can enable ArcView 8x tools, use the Conversion Tools menu to individually "Import from Interchange File..." to a coverage, and then use the Feature Class to Feature Class tool (Conversion Tools > To Geodatabase) to convert to polygons, however this is extremely slow to do for each one. Is there an easier method to run them all in one go in Model Builder?

The next step would be to merge them all and dissolve.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
