1950’S “Cossacks” Wool Car Club Jacket

VINTAGE 1950'S "COSSACKS" CAR CLUB HOT ROD WOOL JACKET - GOLDEN BEAR M/L

The base is a Golden Bear, wool varsity style jacket. Faded burgundy patterned nylon lining, ribbed elastic cuffs, hem and collar. The jacket itself is a dark green with white snaps and accents. Would be a pretty cool jacket to have on its own, but that’s just the base. A fully embroidered back piece let’s you know this dude was one bad ass Cossack. Big top rocker spells it our for you in a cool font. The C trails off in the shape of a Cossack sword called the Shashka. Below that a real fierce-looking fella rides into glory, sword drawn, jockeying a V8 like a horse. Bottom rocker reads “Hayward Calif”. Chain stitched on the front left breast is “Jim”. Under that reads “FoMoCo” indicating this was a Ford squad, or at least Jim was partial to them.

I can’t find any information on the Cossacks car club. I am almost certain there is no relationship to the now famed motorcycle gang. Judging by this jacket, the car club predated the MC by quite a few years.
