From modest beginnings nearly 80 years ago, the Soap Box Derby race has become an American institution. Of course times, as well as equipment, have changed, but this item is a throwback piece to days gone by. This plastic driver's helmet bears a sticker for the 1952 race, "celebrating 15 years of a constructive activity for American boys" and includes a sponsorship logo from Chevrolet. (And if you're doing the math, the race was suspended for three years from 1943-45 due to World War II, making 1952 the 15th year). The helmet is light blue, lightweight plastic, with a cloth chinstrap with metal buckle, and the item is in NRMT condition.
