Stephen C. Goss

This was one of the more exciting discoveries made during my initial research into the origins of 1559.

One of the things I did soon after acquiring 1559, was to purchase an online subscription to the MotorSport Magazine archives, where I spent many long evenings searching for references to “twin-cam Elites”.

Eventually, I discovered this:

Letter to the editor
Motorsport Magazine, March, 1984

Here, finally, was a statement that not only did the car exist, but that the factory had tried to sell it to someone!

We were able to locate Stephen, and not only did he spend a considerable amount of time happily chatting on the phone, he joined us for 1559’s official unveiling at Lime Rock Park’s annual “Sunday in the Park” Concours d’Elegance. (Where we won ‘best in Class’).
