Phil Hill drove for Jim Hall's iconic Chaparral racing team for 1966 and 1967, the final years of his racing career. Hinchman driving suits were the gold standard of the era and are still sold today. The company started in 1925 and was the first to offer fireproof Nomex fabric in 1965. This lot includes two Hinchman racing suits, which feature the company's checkerboard logo. This defining feature can be seen in a photo of Phil Hill at Le Mans in 1967 and thus these suits are believed by the consignor to have been worn by Hill at the 1967 24 Hours of Le Mans. Also included is the 1967 24 Hours of Le Mans driver armband.
