1970’s Bud Tinglestad Replica Sprint/IndyCar Helmet
Premier helmet painted to replicate one worn by Bud Tingelstad who raced for over fifteen years in Sprint, Stock, Midget and IndyCars. The son of a Norwegian, hence his slightly unusual surname, his mechanic father got Bud into racing driving midgets in 1953. Bud enjoyed a long career in IndyCars and competed in ten Indianapolis 500 races between 1960 and 1972.. His only race win came in 1966 where he triumphed in a dirt-track race at DuQuoin.
The white open face helmet has a metallic blue, edged in silver, three-pointed scalloped design with Tingelstad’s name on either side.
The helmet comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
