    1977 Johnny Rutherford Race Worn Fire Suit. Only ten men in history have won the Indianapolis 500 three times or more and Rutherford belongs to that esteemed brotherhood, taking the checkered flag at the Brickyard in 1974, 1976 and 1980. The presented fire suit dates from the center of that age of dominance, worn during the 1977 racing season according to our consignor, whose husband was gifted the flame-retardant garment by a member of Rutherford's pit crew. "Hinchman Indianapolis" maker's label appears at interior collar, while the exterior is adorned with a wide variety of sponsor patches and embroidered in red script at right chest with Rutherford's name. Solid wear evident.
