1955 – 1957 Juan Manuel Fangio replica helmet with goggles
This is a perfect copy of the vintage open face Herbert Johnson style helmet and goggles Fangio wore over three years during his drives and Championships in various race cars including the Mercedes W196, Maserati 250F, Lancia D24 & D50, Ferrari 860 Monza & 290 MM. The helmet shell is built from a base molded from resin and fibers while its inside is lined with natural 3mm / 0.12″ thick cork. All straps are crafted from the finest real cow leather while the padding and covers are stitched from 100% cotton. The matching goggles are leather, metal and acrylic and fit nicely around the crown.
