1985 Johnny Parsons Signed Race Used ‘Canadian Tire’ Indy 500 Visor
Bell helmet visor used by American open-wheel veteran Johnny Parsons. Parsons is the son of 1950 Indy 500 winner Johnnie Parsons and stepson to racer Duane Carter. The visor was used while driving the David Billes owned, Canadian Tire sponsored, Cosworth powered March 85C 22 during the 1985 Indianapolis 500, where Parsons equaled his 1977 best place finish of fifth place. Parsons started twelve Indy 500 races, having his last Indy 500 start in the 1996 event.
The lightly tinted visor bears a ‘Johnny Parsons’ name on a white Bell Helmets sun strip, which overlays a red Canadian Tire sun strip. The visor was obtained directly from Johnny Parsons’s own collection and has been personally signed by him with a gold marker pen.
