The Ford XB Falcon was a car produced by Ford Motor Company between 1973 and 1976 and was built exclusively in Australia. It bore minor cosmetic differences to the preceding model, the XA, aimed at giving the car a more muscular stance. First time equipment offerings included standard disc brakes and an available carpeted interior.

Among the limited edition variants of the XB was the John Goss Special, released in 1975 and named for the race driver who took a Falcon to victory in the Bathurst 1000 in 1974.
