John Goss Special XB info wanted

Hey guys,

I'm after any info on the John Goss XB's that anyone may have. The cars are 28 years old now so the details on the net are pretty sketchy at best. :)

I'm interested in stuff like details of production numbers & build dates. No one seems to know how many are out there.

Thanks
Matt

I had one years ago. It was blue instead of the green, and rather rusty.

Nice car. 302 auto. Went pretty well. Don't think there was much to them other than the paint job.

Would be getting pretty rare now.

I'm pretty sure that there were only something like 500 or so made unsure of the exact build date's but I think it was like March April in 75 I think, I may well be wrong.

Have a look at it plate's under the bonnet they should give you the exact date, week and which line they came off.

If not get on to the Falcon Cobra Car Club of Australia web site and send Mark Pividor an e-mail he seem's to know a lot about the Goss' as well as the Cobra's.

Nathan.

p.s my missus will be very envious of you, she's wanted a John Goss special for ages, but we just can't seem to find any for sale.

Thanks guys,

It actually my father's car & for the record its an August 1975 build & cost $6000. Its unregistered & requires a bit of work to restore it back to original condition.

Looking on the net I've seen the build numbers of 260, 266, & 400+ thrown about, so who know's what's right? :)

From what I can gather one way to pick a Goss from a standard 500 is that the Goss's had either paint code Q (for green) or S (for blue). Again this may only be a rumour. Ford didn't keep records of these things like they did with the GTs unfortunately.

Just grab the chassis no. and engine no. and ring Ford champ, they should be able to verify it, I did that before I bought my Cobra and they sent me out everything they had on them they were a great help.

Nathan.

p.s if you don't want to spend the coin on it to fix it up let me know cause my missus would love to get her hand's on it.

One thing I do know for sure is that there were a substantialy less no. of blue one's than there were of the green one's.

I might try Ford again. I spoke to them about my GT & GS & they told me they could only provide info on the GTs & Cobras, not the GS's. I assumed they couldn't give me any Goss info.

It may be worth another shot. I've only ever seen another 3 in the flesh & would love to know how many others are out there :)

I know of three other's in Brissie, one's an exceptional show piece, one's standard through and through and the last one is rather run down but I'd kill to get my hand's on any of 'em.
