Sox & Martin Drag Racing 1965 Vintage Kid’s T-Shirt

Sox & Martin Drag Racing 1965 Vintage Kid’s T-Shirt

$24.95

The Sox & Martin team started came together over a ’63 Chevy Z11, but it was when they made the move to Plymouth in 1965 that things really took off for them. Their first Mopar was a Hemi-powered, altered-wheelbase Plymouth Belvedere that they ran in match races due to being banned from running in Factory Experimental Class by the NHRA and made the first-ever nine-second pass in a naturally aspirated full-bodied car. This was a sign of things to come as the Sox & Martin cars would go down in history among the most successful in drag racing in the ’60s and ’70s. Based in Burlington, the team — with Martin as the manager, Sox as the driver, and Jake King as the crew chief — would go on to win five national championships. In 1970, Sox captured four of the six NHRA national events, and he won six of eight NHRA meets the following year. While they may have started out running Chevys, their red, white, and blue Mopars went from iconic to straight-up legendary as it wasn’t often that you’d find full-bodied rides achieving the supercar performance levels that Sox & Martin’s cars did.

Details


Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Delta 11736 tees, one of the softest, best-wearing kid’s t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. In short, this youth pro weight tee is perfect for every kid who wants a comfortable shirt to play, relax, or romp around in and our durable, high quality prints will survive many adventures.

  • Regular fit
  • 100% soft cotton (fibre content may vary for different colors)
  • Light fabric (5.2 oz /yd² (176 g/m²))
  • Tear away label
  • Runs slightly smaller than most

Sizing


Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
