Lot Details
A pair of Graham Hill's Hinchman Nomex Overalls, used during the 1973 racing season,
cream with distinctive red, yellow and blue stripes on left breast, with Hinchman, and two Goodyear embroidered patches, original stitching of driver's name unpicked by visible on right breast above the zipped pocket, zip fronted with velcro neck fastening and elasticated cuffs and ankles, worn.

Footnotes

  • According to information supplied by the vendor these overalls were gifted by Graham Hill to his great friend John Young. John unpicked Graham's embroidered name and applied a later Goodwood patch (now removed) to cover the area so this suit could be used in retro events such as the Goodwood Revival.

    See: Ivan Rendall 'The Chequered Flag', page 278-279 for an image of Hill wearing a 1973 Hinchman Nomex suit.
