Vintage ca. 1970s photo of Ferrari 250 GT Speciale S/N 2613GT

2613GT-01
!

Vintage 1970's photo of Ferrari 250 GT Speciale.

Unknown where and when this photo was taken but probably the early 1970's judging by the clothing of the people in the picture.

The car is the ex Prince Bernhard of The Netherlands Ferrari 250 SWB Sperimentale # 2613 GT.

At the time when this picture was taken, the car was most probably in possession of van Eldik in The Netherlands as the car no longer bears its "Royal" license plates but "normal" Dutch ones.

The car now seems to reside with Bob Lee in the USA.

The photo measures approximately 7 x 5 inches.

This is a vintage print, i.e. printed shortly after the original image was captured on film.

Only 1 available.

Vintage 1961 Photo of Wolfgang Berghe von Trips at the GP Great Britain at Aintree

This is a vintage 1961 photo of Count Wolfgang Berghe von Trips (1928 - 1961) in the pits of Aintree in his Ferrari 156 Sharknose # 4, on July 13, 1961 during a practice session for the Grand Prix of Britain 2 days later.

This was a mere 2 months before he died at Monza race track!

The photo is in excellent condition (although not super sharp, it could be described as "somewhat soft-focus") and measures some 6.25 x 4.75 inches.

The photographer wrote "13-7-1961 W. von Trips" on the top border (visible in the scan). You can leave it there "as is", trim the borders off the photo or have it disappear under a matting when you have it framed.

Wolfgang would drive a Ferrari 156 Sharknose in this Grand Prix and although he only qualified in 4th position, he would go on to win the race.

A really great vintage and VERY late photo of von Trips.

Only 1 available.

Vintage 1961 Le Mans Handbill / Flyer.

These flyers were handed out at the race to spectators to show them around the track.

Very scarce as most of them were tossed away after the race or disappeared into the mists of time.

The cover matches the image of the 1961 race poster which is after a color illustration which was part of the so-called "Major Illustrators" era in Le Mans posters which lasted from 1954 - 1963 and in which the cream of the crop of French motorsport illustrators such as Geo Ham, Jeudon and Michel Beligond were hired for the design of the race posters.

The poster shows a fantastic image, by Michel Beligond, of the # 12 Ferrari 250 TRI/60 powering its way out of the Esses and heading towards Tertre Rouge during the previous edition in 1960.

The combination of warm colors represents the arrival of dusk, highlighting the red Ferrari in the center of the poster. This year, 1961, the race was part of the Sports Car World Championship.

Mint condition.

It measures 5.4 x 8.4 inches and unfolds to 21.6 x 8.4 inches.

The race was won by Phil Hill and Olivier Gendebien in their Ferrari 250 TRI/61 (S/N 0794TR) with a total of 333 laps to their name.

For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1961.
