Re: John Goss Xb on ebay

Thanks for the link. Looks like a nice car.

It doesn't say if the 351 in it now is the original block or not though.

The engine and toploader are not original

Yeah I emailed him also and got the same response.

Does this de-value the car, obviously not the original John Goss motor in the vehicle.

I dunno. I guess that is upto the buyer. But for mine. He wants 14k as that is his buy it now price. For similar dollars you could find an xb gt hardtop instead of the goss.

True...I reckon' a stock original Gossy in tip top nic is well worth those sort of dollars, but would be concerned about one that has been heavily modified (purely for collectability reasons). Dosn't mean its not a good car though. Old story, if someone really wants it, they will pay!

Saw one in a Southwest Sydney car yard a few years back and immediately did a U-ey to check it out. Only to find it was a bit of a rust bucket (practically needed a new roof), had a 351 in it, shite interior and by the end of inspection i wasn't even convinced it was a JGS. Had about $7K on it! Believe it may have been picked up by exporters and may well be OS. If someone managed to salvaged this one in any form: JGS, MM..., it is one of those cases where I don't care where it ended up!

In my opinion yes. Not saying this one isn't worth $14k if someone is willing to pay it, but it would be worth more if it had the original block.

I got some info sent to me the other day about a JGS that was picked up after sitting in a paddock for 20 years or so (Hi Mark if you're reading :))

Can't wait to see this one when it's restored.
