George Follmer

Authentic Styling

The Saleen | Follmer Edition Mustang is styled from the #16 1969 Boss 302 Mustang that George Follmer campaigned the same year. As part of the Saleen Heritage Collection, it reflects the same vintage racing attitude of the respective counterpart of yesteryear. Paint color schemes are offered only in the same color identity as the original, forming the backdrop for the Special Edition graphics that set each vehicle apart from the rest of the pack. Each interior is composed to give the driver the same excitement and feeling of running hot laps before a big race, but with modern comforts. Exterior aerodynamics are representative of the beloved cars that race fans still reminisce about today.

Born: 01-27-1934

Birthplace: Phoenix, Arizona, USA

 

George Follmer was one of many US drivers who entered motor sport during the 1960’s, but unlike so many, Follmer quickly demonstrated just how talented he was, winning the 1972 Can-Am series, making his debut in Formula One racing in 1973, and winning the SCCA Trans-Am Championship in 1972 & 1976. Prior to racing he was technically an insurance salesman before acquiring a Los Angeles area tire distributorship from Firestone.

 

Introduced to his first race in the 1950’s, where he drove passed a gymkhana challenge in his Porsche, entered and won. After his first race (and win) he was hooked on motorsport and began racing as an amateur in SCCA events through the early 1960’s, retired when he found out racing cost money; only to later emerge in a big way with a championship in the 1965 SCCA Road Racing series.

 

He’s the second half of the Parnelli Jones-George Follmer rack ‘em and stack ‘em Bud Moore Ford Mustang Team. Follmer began his Trans-Am career with Roger Penske’s Camaro’s in 1967, moved to Javelin’s in 1968, and finally the Boss 302 Mustangs in 1969. During the ’69 race season he won at Bridgehampton, held multiple pole positions and led many of the Trans-Am championship races.

 

George Follmer has had success in multiple series including: 1966-73 Can-Am, 1969-1981 SCCA Trans-Am, 1967-71 & 74 USAC Champ Car, 1969-71 Indy Car, 1973 Formula One, 1974 NASCAR Winston Cup, 1974-75 IROC, 1986 24 Hours of Lemans, and currently still competes in vintage racing events. In 1987-88, he also drove for Saleen as a factory driver, where he helped them bring home a championship in 1987.

 

Inducted into the Motorsport hall of fame in 1999, Follmer is known to drive any competitive car offered to him and once he gets behind the wheel, he’ll be close to Victory Circle at the end. He tends to look stern, tends to emulate his teammate (Jones) by walking around with his arms folded, but smile at him, he’ll smile back.
