Be aware that this is a bit of a trick question.
UNIX is proprietary and source code is not always available. Sorta...
Older UNIX source code can be found at The UNIX heritage society
Sun offers source code for OpenSolaris
, don't know if that includes core utilities you mention.
Chances are you did actually mean the GNU core utilities usually found on Linux and available for other UNIX and non UNIX operating systems that archShade pointed to.
You can also get source code from the distribution you use. Although Tinkster mentions Debian it is available from other distro sites.
On the other hand UNIX source code from AIX and UNIXWARE are probably not available for download.
