Found these on an aussie car forum:

Story goes that the car is a former John Goss Special, and was built in 7 or so weeks!
The car is for an Australian Art exhibition in.. Venice ?!??
Was built for an "Artist".

Apart from that not much in the way of other info. (Most of the people posting in there including the builder dont appear very "Max" orientated)

Car was built just outside Sydney.

The blower looks like a very nice MM1 setup!
Would be interesting to know more about it and where the car is shown.

Wondering if he finished the car off with the lower sections and rear in satin black.

Much as I like the replicas, I'd hate to think someone ripped up a Gossie to build one. :(

Whats ripped up about it? It can always be put back to road car/Goss Specs. It probly wasent #s matching etc.. I hate getting the idea that just because our cars are replicas its not like its hard to put them back to original. I may plan on restoring mine back to normal someday. I know i can very easy. Thats why i dont understand the whole "Oh MY God it was a real GT turned replica" remarks At least with a real GT turned replica if it was #s matching at least the fake blower cant blow up the original motor! LOL :)

If it is a true gossie / gt and it's in crap shape you have my blessing. Most of the time it's mm replica or the scrapheap for cars like this. But cutting up a mint (or close to) gossie / gt is blasphemy. I always told myself that if I get a muscle car I'll murder it out and turn it into a road warrior. But if it's a Mach 1 or Torino Cobra I'll keep it original.

In the end it's all about what the owner wants. We can't do crap about it.
