Lot 1385: 1970 Mario Andretti Indy Car Season Race-Worn Driving Suit
Auction Date:12/15/2006 9:00 PM EST
Worn during the 1970 Indy car season, his white nylon one-piece with red shoulder and sleeve trim was manufactured by the Worth Company. The left sleeve is adorned with their sponsorship patch, the right with one from "Castro GTO Motor Oil", and others running down the left breast were removed during that time. Signed by the legend of the blacktop in similar color sharpie, "Mario Andretti-Driver of the Century" just above his chain-stitched name on the right breast. This title was well deserved as he was just a year removed from his 1969 victory at Indianapolis and had recently droped the flag at the Sebring 12-Hour. The overall condition excellent, with obvious and extensive race usage.
