Other day i was driving home from work and as the road goes downhill in the opposite direction i spotted a xb coupe flying with the colours white and green (from memory) with the numberplate XBGOSS looked like a fine example of one which brings me to my question what special about these goss models?

I know there on the samewave length as like the brock models but with these goss models is there any tweaks done to them? What models were given the ''GOSS'' badge, why was john goss used more closely with the ford products compared to someone like allan moffat? And was john goss more successful then Allan moffat in racing terms?

Any sort of feedback is once again appreciated....cheers!

OK there was review in Motor manual Jan 1976 (pages 51 & 52). It had:

white painted bumpers.
white grill surround,
6 inch sports wheels (12 slotter steels)'
orange side stripes,
front 286 mm discs with rear drum brakes.
choice of blue and white or green and white paintwork,
auto or manual 500 hardtop with full GS pack (including bonnet scoop, dummy side vents, sports instrumentation, fake wood grain 3 spoke steering wheel, day night rear vision mirror, unmodified cooking version of the 302 V8 (not even dual exhaust), infinitely adjustable seats, white upholstery).
cost $6217 new and was considered a show rather than a go car.
