Same car thats been advertised previously, he seems to think that "many, if not all Goss specials were 351 even though they were stickered as 302's"

Read the description carefully. He has fitted a 4MA crank, and has all the parts necessary to convert it back. That's my impression, anyway

Yes ALL Goss's were 302's.

The other thing is 4MA cranks are american cranks, the Goss cars were built way after they stopped making clevelands in America and made them in Australia. Aussie made clevelands DONT have 4MA cranks.

I have never found a 4MA crank in a Aussie cleveland but I have found 4MABs. Both my Landau and my XB K code GS both came with 4MAB cranks. I have an engine out of a ZG Fairlane that also has a 4MAB. All my XC's have the Aussie "351" cranks. I think the 4MAB cranks dried up towards the end of 74.
