This week we’re very pleased to be releasing the 1:18 Scale Ford XB Falcon Hardtop John Goss Special Mcleod Ford Horn Car option in Apollo Blue Over Polar White.
The John Goss Special was a limited edition XB Falcon hardtop which was released by Ford in 1975 to celebrate his win at the Bathurst 1000 the year before in 1974. With a 302 Cleveland V8 under the bonnet, the John Goss Special featured some specific options including the GS Rally Pack which featured full dash instrumentation, a 3-spoke steering wheel, vented bonnet (hood) with locking pins, and 12-slot steel road wheels. A separate item featured on all John Goss Special hardtops were the cosmetic side body vents that were also a feature of contemporary Falcon GT hardtops. The car was produced in one of two metallic accent colours over the base Polar White colour scheme in Apollo Blue or Emerald Fire and also featured Polar White wheels, front bumper and grille assembly.
Some Ford dealers such as McLeod Ford in Sydney (who were known for their ‘Horn’ cars) chose to add accessories such as front and rear spoilers, or to modify the interior seating to feature colourful cloth or vinyl inserts. This particular edition is based on one of those cars.
This will be our second and last 1:18 John Goss Special McLeod Ford Horn Car, and with the Emerald Fire version selling out almost straight away last year, we don't expect this version to remain available for long.
Produced in die-cast with fully opening parts, high detail and coming in a limited edition of 800 pieces with a numbered certificate of Authenticity, this model is a must have for Ford fans and shouldn’t be missed.
It will be available to purchase online at www.biante.com.au from 12 Midday WST Tomorrow, Friday January 19.
