1960’s Don Meacham Vintage Hinchman USAC Midget Racing Suit
Californian Don Meacham, who served in the US Air Force, became a racing driver in the 60’s and was as good a Midget car driver as there was. Meacham would win 9 United States Auto Club (USAC) Championships and achieved celebrity status on the Australian and New Zealand racing circuits for his driving prowess. Not only was he a great driver but Meacham also served as his own mechanic and pit crew. Meachan also raced, on occasion, in Sportscars as well in the early part of his career and attempted to qualify for the 1967 Indy 500. Meacham was inducted into the National Midget Auto Racing Hall of Fame in 2013.
This well used vintage light blue Hinchman suit would have been used in the late 60’s. It has a dark blue stripe running down the outside of both arms and legs. Meacham’s name is embroidered on the left side of the chest and has a waist belt that is fastened with a brass clasp.
The suit comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
