1960 Stirling Moss race suit.
This one piece dark blue suit was worn at several races including the 1960 New Zealand GP where Moss’ Cooper Climax T51 led but eventually retired due to clutch failure. The suit is well worn and complete with BRDC patch and Dunlop embroidery. In the earlier years drivers had much less gear and as such this suit was probably worn in sportscar racing i.e. the Maserati Birdcage and other cars. A photo of Stirling wearing it in New Zealand as well a second photo of him trying it on for the owner several years later, are both included and showing above.
Also included is a letter from the original owner, who crewed for Moss and received it directly.
