Goss Pro­to­type

Australian Muscle Car - - Contents - Story: Steve Nor­moyle Im­ages: Chris Cur­rie

The car John Goss wanted to race at Bathurst in 1975 be­comes a re­al­ity 40-plus years later.

You’re not alone if you strug­gled to get ‘your head around’ this ma­chine when it broke cover at the end of last year. AMC was just as per­plexed, so we ap­proached John Goss about his project car. The rac­ing leg­end was pleased to take us through the in­spi­ra­tion and ex­e­cu­tion of the re­cently­built XB coupe ‘pro­to­type’, a Falcon hard­top he might have raced at Bathurst in 1975.
