Dif­fi­cult de­but

Australian Muscle Car - - Goss Special -

The JGS pro­to­type made its pub­lic de­but in, of all places, an auc­tion house. Ac­cord­ing to Goss, the orig­i­nal owner took the de­ci­sion to part with the project. The pro­to­type was of­fered for sale by Lloyds Auc­tions at the end of last year, where it was pre­sented dressed in ‘pe­riod’ Goss Rac­ing liv­ery. The car’s ap­pear­ance at auc­tion led to wide­spread pub­lic misconception in so­cial me­dia over its his­tor­i­cal iden­tity. Goss re­grets the con­fu­sion cre­ated, and points out that pre­sent­ing it al­most as if it was his 1975 Bathurst car was not his idea. “I did not want it to have com­mer­cial liv­ery. It’s a car that did not ex­ist at the time but it’s the car we would have built. So it should have been pre­sented as an un­marked pro­to­type.”
