Re: John Goss Special

Given the cost of restoring cars these days you'd be far better off restoring a GT, it will have a much better retailed value than a 302 JGS, and far better resale value too.

JGS Cars seem to be getting a decent price these days, all be it less than most GTs. They are every bit a collectable car, rarer than the GT. Not all restos are for resale purposes either.

Maybe :)

The prices of any of the coupes nowdays means that its pretty hard to lose money restoring one. I'd easily recover the restoration cost of my JGS if I were to sell it. Also remember that its just about impossible to buy a "cheap" GT anything these days. $10,000 will only get a car that needs a fair bit of work.

Plus if you're a fan of the car it doesn't matter what they're worth. I have a GT, GS & JGS in the shed & I'll tell you that more people comment on the JGS than the other 2 combined :)

True a GT will pull the biggest numbers but it also cost big to play that game. With only 22,067 hardtops built from 72-78 ANY hardtop is worth restoring although it may not pull big numbers on the market. Within the next few years you will see XA Superbirds, XB JGS's, and all V8 Fairmonts pulling down good resale prices.....not on par with GTs but still good prices. One really good investment now is in 302 & 351 Fairmont GS's. A decent well kept car with verification letter from Ford and owner records IS a great find and worth a good bit of money. If he is like most of us, a JGS is a very good starting point as even sh!tbox GT's are getting to be out of most peoples price range.
