Built new in 1977 as an XC Falcon, the car made its racing debut at that year’s Hardie-Ferodo 1000 at Bathurst as part of a two-car John Goss Racing team with the great Sir Jack Brabham and his sponsor base joining Goss.

Run in a blue livery with backing from radio station 2SM and Citizen Watches, the car looked the part.

Goss’ existing XB GT Falcon was upgraded to XC specification and was used at the pre-Bathurst, Hang Ten 400 at Sandown by Brabham to serve as a warm-up for his return to Mount Panorama.

The new XC made its race debut at Bathurst as the #5 entry driven by Goss and French Le Mans star Henri Pescarolo, qualifying 16th and not being classified as a finisher with only 113 laps completed due to gearbox troubles.

Goss raced the car for the remainder of the 1977 Australian Touring Car Championship. Bathurst was not a round of the ’77 ATCC, however the rest of the endurance races were and the 1974 Bathurst winner competed in all of them to round out the season.

The car is currently owned by Don Dimitriadis. 

Race Tees is committed to keep the history of motorsport alive by recreating some of the iconic liveries from yesteryear.
