Ford Falcon XB John Goss Special
John Goss became famous racing with Kevin Bartlett around Mount Panorama at Bathurst in the 1970's. Alongside "KB", he won the James Hardie 1000 at Mount Panorama in 1974 in a very close race, and in August, 1975 Ford released a run of XB based John Goss Special limited edition hardtops.

Powered by the 302ci V8 with either an automatic or manual transmission, the car was available in two different paint schemes, blue and white, or green and white.

Despite the choice of only two colors there were many selections of stripes and decals. Color coded front and rear bumpers (similar to the GT) and rally-pack type wheels could also be optioned.

Some individual dealers took it upon themselves to introduce other special components to the John Goss Special like front and rear spoilers and interior options, all this at a hefty cost to the consumer.

Sports handling suspension was fitted, as was a rally instrument pack. Only 260 were produced between 1975 and 1976.
