Fossmobile

Help to re-build the first successful gasoline car in Canada. George Foss’ grandson, Ron Foss has talked with automobile historians and has sought the help of other potential experts in “Vintage Automobile Restoration,” for a very special project. The goal, is to use reverse engineering to create a tribute of George Foss’ invention: the Fossmobile. Ron will provide oversight for this process and collaborate with automobile historians and experts. Along the way, he will document the journey while ensuring attention to detail. The goal is to honour his grandfather’s legacy and bring to greater light this significant chapter of Canadian automotive history. With its completion, this tribute automobile will be a tangible embodiment of the first successful gasoline car built in Canada. There is a growing interest to showcase the completed tribute Fossmobile in classic automobile shows, however, it will be eventually donated to a Canadian museum to enhance historic education for current and future generations.
