Mike, they built either 3 or 4 Follmers..... I’ve seen it in print, but it’s been argued about. 

Chris ( cmcmotorworks) owns #001. Bought it from Steve.  I have the pics of he and Steve standing together with it.

My Gurney is also a very amazing car and was supposed to get 300 units built. Economy killed that plan...... only 68 units were done of them. :rockon:

LOL....yes sir, it’s Chris. 

Mine is #049. Not sure the numbers were in direct correlation with the fact they did not build the entire 300? 

I’ve not been able to find a die cast. Believe me, it’s not been for the lack of trying! 

I’ve accumulated loads of “other” Gurney Saleen collectible stuff. That would be the icing if I could find one. As has been said here before, it’s about the money to these die cast makers. Not enough remuneration for tooling up to make one. Shame....

On a side note Mike.....the Boss302forum is totally off the webisphere now. Another shame... :(

Hey Guys: This is for Mike, Chris, and also falcongtho3!  First up; No, I never was lucky enough to get to drive the awesome Parnelli Jones but I would love to!   Mike, yes the pretty young lady standing next to the P.J. sure doesn't hurt while admiring the (pretty lady):clapping:oops I meant the car! :lol:   I hate to say this MIke,  but the George Follmer Car no.16 just might be better looking than the P.J.!   I know color wise I like it better, and probably also performance wise with that extra 70 H.P.!   Also Mike, with only around 4 made it would be a very,very rare car to own and would be highly sought after by collectors, which then means skyrocketing value!

 Chris, very cool addition to your collection!  Your Dan Gurney / Saleen  No.2  with only 68 built should be a highly sought after collector!  When you here Dan Gurney's name mentioned people listen!   He and his cars and all his racing accomplishments will go down in history, but he also will be remembered as a very like-able, stand-up type of guy and one hell of a racer and builder!:clapping:

Just my opinion, Chris:  I'd hang on to this one!:victory:

Talk at Ya all,    Later!

Haha. I will not be getting rid of #049....it’s memories are behind even that of Mr. Gurney himself. I won’t go into why here, as we are straying way off topic. 

On another note...I dug up my 60’s 1/18 (or more like 1/20) Batmobile today and took a pic. It won’t upload here. It has a Batman figurine standing next to it too. 

I think I got it at Wally World a while back.

Mongoose .....No the picture of the PJ with the “ pretty young lady”  I got off the internet. I thought it might be funny for us old guys. She makes the mustang look special don’t yah think ? 

Does anyone know how many of the 14 George Follmer Saleen mustangs were built ? They were supposed to build 250 @ $75 K . What do you think of this heritage edition ?  Looks kind of cool but never seen one in person. I know Saleen ordered 33 red mustang GT’s for conversions back in 2014. But that’s all I know . I did find out info on the specs below.

“Powering the heart of the beast is a 302 4-valve DOHC V-8 putting out 470 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. Other modifications include a race tuned “High RPM” intake manifold, high-flow 90 mm throttle body, Saleen shaker hood intake system with low resistance air management, performance intake and exhaust camshafts, 6-speed MT-82 manual transmission and 3.73 gears 

Spark co. Does make the PJ edition of the 69 boss. I posted this before and it’s a cool model but not diecast.  

Later.

 Mike, that Follmer car you posted is indeed serial #001....Chris’s car. The rear window scoops are the giveaway. Those were preproduction models. They ended up using a totally different scoop on the other 3 cars. His car was used to travel the country for media shots.  When they were done, Steve sold it to Chris. 

Who knows...maybe he’ll wander in some time to tell more?

Do you mean this car # 1 on the front bumper ?  Wow plans were for 250 . I know Amy is over there now let’s see if she can turn things around  with the new sportscar and back to mustangs only now. I wish her luck . I’ve owned a few Saleens in the past and never had any concerns . 

Ok ...going to post some more die cast soon. Need more from you guys . Weather has been cold in Atlanta. Stuck inside the house. Got the grandkids coming over for a sleep over. Bring out the cars ? play time.

Mike, that bottom pic of your granddaughter reminded me instantly of Cindy Lou Who from the Dr. Suess show The Grinch. 

Too cute :)

Mike:  It's great to have grandkids to see and enjoy watching them play!  I don't let my 4 year old grandson play with my good diecast either!   It looks like you have a 1969 yellow Boss 302 mustang on the floor for them.  It's probably the American Muscle 1/18th brand that you could buy for around $12.00 at Fleet Farm a few years back. I have a few of them also, Mustangs,Bosses,Shelbys etc.  Enjoy your grandkids while they're little because they grow up so fast!:clapping: 

Talk at  Ya,   Later!

I'm back !   Here's a few pictures of some of my Automobilia  for all you fellow car nuts to enjoy! 

The first picture is a full size Cobra front end, and above it is the Shelby print, a limited edition print by Dave Snyder, (Village Ford), "Very Cool"!  It was a past Christmas present from my "Better-Half"  The second and third pictures are of a 1965, G.T.350, White/Blue, No.98, limited edition,287of 600,  24"x18"/with Remarque, "Very Cool", it's hard to make out the artists name! I bought it at Road America a number of years ago! The forth picture is of the real No.2,GT-40, 1966, owned at that time by George Stauffer at Road America in the Ford display of some awesome GT-40s! The fifth picture is of my curio cabinet display with a light-up Mobil gas globe on top! It is completely stuffed with Exoto Daytonas, GT-40, Grand Sport Corvettes, die cast gas pumps, lots of very cool Hot Wheels ,signs, Kiddie Cars, and patches,ect.!  The last picture is of a framed and signed event poster of Carroll Shelby at the Brian Redman/ Merril Lynch International Challenge in July,1997 at Road America, Elkart Lake,WI. Around the frame I always try to put my past ticket stubs from the Brian Redman  events that I always try to attend!

 "Hope all of You enjoy some my Collectables".

Mongosse..... your gas pump is really cool and air meter also. Yeah in the garage what else is there but automobilia. And cars. 

But this is diecast so here you go ...still like my mustang GT4. I hope someone will produce the GT4 soon. Sebring this weekend let’s see how they do.

Very cool stuff Mike! You have quite  a lot of cool Coca-Cola memorabilia , and I really like the Coke dispensers!  Your Gulf gas pump is pretty neat and I like how you placed your No.25 Stang in front of that picture.

Hey guys, I'm posting some more die cast for you fellow car nuts out there! One picture is of Bob Bondurant  signing the roof of my Exoto Cobra Daytona No.26 at Road America.  The other items posted are various sizes of some of my smaller die cast gas pumps.  There is also pictured a Texaco gift tin set that has a miniature pump inside and a very cool pocket watch with gold chain.

Talk at Ya,  Later!

Mongoose.. do you still have your 69 mach1 428 ? I put Bob bonderant right up there with Dan Gurney and the king Carroll Shelby. Those guys did so much for Ford racing and the Shelby image. That’s a cool cobra to have with a picture of Bob Bonderant signing it. The miniature gas pumps are neat. Got to get me one. Maybe to match my Gulf one but I don’t think they make that particular model. Got to post some pictures of  my GMP Shelby later today.  65 today and 70 tomorrow got to get out and burn some gas  ⛽️ 

Later Mike.

:thumbsup:Great collection 

 To; shelby001:  Thanks for all the nice comments on my collection!  I imagine that you probably really liked the picture of the No.98 ,  65 GT-350 with the remark on the bottom!  I said this, because I see that you are interested in the 65, Mustang GT. I purchased said picture at Road America, Elkart Lake, Wi., (Awesome Track and very cool little town)! I was down there for the Brian Redman, the (HAWK), and Kohler Co. International Challenge Event a few years back !  The picture is signed by the artist but I can't quite make out his name! So, I have a question for you!  Do you know who this artist is and recognize his signature? Any info on this very cool picture would be much appreciated!    THANKS!

Talk  at Ya,   Later!

Later Mike. 

Mike, I'm sorry to say that I sold it well over 10 years ago at least!  Almost right after I sold it, the prices on these cars skyrocketed!  I used to work with the guy that bought it! The car had 80% original paint, but the engine could use a refresh, but it was still a beast!  The No.26 Daytona Coupe is the one that Bob drove for Carroll Shelby. Bob, later ended up buying the No.26 from Carroll for said $4,000, and later on he sold it for $10,000. He then used the profit to open up his driving school, and the rest is history! Bob Bondurant was a excellent racer and he is a very cool guy to talk to! Besides my Daytona Coupe, he also signed a 1962-1992 road & track magazine on, Cobra,Shelby,& Ford GT-40, and also a GT-40 T-shirt! Also signing my Road & Track, and my GT-40 shirt were , Brian Redman,Phil Henny,Moes Nowland, Lee Holman, Tony Adamowirz,John S. Allen, and also A.J. Baime.   Mr. Baime also signed his book," Go Like Hell" for me also.  This was all at the "Kohler International Challenge" with Brian Redman, Presented by Ford, July 16-19, 2009, at Road America, Elkart Lake, WI.  The gentlemen that were mentioned were all big in the history of Ford and the "Legends" that were made!:clapping:

Mike, I'm jealous of your weather, it's only in the mid 30s today and still some snow on the ground and my Shelby is still hibernating in the garage!  Brrrrrr.....:cold:   Waiting to see pics of your GMP Shelby!:cool:

Talk at Ya,   Later!
