1994 Emerson Fittipaldi Signed Original Bell Feuling Unused Team Penske IndyCar Helmet
This stunning original rare Bell Feuling helmet was one painted by Cleber Designs for Emerson Fittipaldi around the 1994 CART IndyCar season. The legendary driver and former 2 time F1 World Champion and 2 time Indy 500 winner was driving for Team Penske. The helmet is brand new and not used but Fittipaldi presented this helmet to a very close racing friend and added a personal dedication to the friend along with his signature (please note due to age this has some fading, see pictures). The signature could be easily removed and resigned.
This rare model helmet has a variation of Fittipaldi’s iconic design he wore throughout his career. Its blue metallic base color has a fluorescent orange center widening ended stripe that runs across the top front to back and continues around to the helmet’s lower sides. This is stripe is overlaid with dividing blue pinstriping. The metallic dark blue has a lighter blue multi-tube fading graphic design to both the upper sides and back. There is a single fading tube to either cheek. Also applied to both sides are Marlboro chevron logos and Fittipaldi, Boss, and Penske lettering decals. On the chin of the helmet is a Boss/Hugo Boss lettered trademark decal. As previously mentioned the Fittipaldi dedication and personal signature is to the middle of the top front of the helmet and is dated when signed in 2002.
Fittipaldi can be seen in another Bell Feuling helmet in pictures.
Even though this helmet is not race used it would make an excellent center/talking piece in any racing memorabilia collection
The helmet will be accompanied by a full Certificate of Authenticity.
