1960’s Joe Burton Sprint Car Race Used Helmet
Helmet used by Sprint Car driver Joe Burton. This great-looking period helmet was used by Burton on dirt race tracks around the Indianapolis area in the mid-’60s. Burton was the brother of famous Motorsport artist Ron Burton. The battled scared helmet has a black orange and yellow scalloped design on its white base that was painted by brother Ron. It also so still wears a black peak that has the word ‘Hosea!’ painted to it and full-face shield visor and as is when Burton last used it.
A great piece of vintage early 1960’s Sprint Car memorabilia that would look good amongst any collection.

Ron Burton is a famous artist who often traded his paintings with drivers for one of their helmets. We are proud to offer this unique collection of many one-of-a-kind helmets and artwork.
The helmet comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
