Vintage Original 1958 24 Hours of Le Mans Poster in Mint Condition

Vintage Original 1958 24 Hours of Le Mans Poster.

June 21 & 22, 1958.

It measures approximately:
11 x 15 inches
28 x 38 cm

This is an extremely scarce example of the 1958 24 Heures du Mans poster.

It is in in as mint a condition as a poster of over half a century old can be; truly SPECTACULAR!

The 1958 Le Mans poster is 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 Beligond were hired for the design of the race posters.

The design of the 1958 poster was by Michel Beligond and was his first work for the Le Mans 24 hours race.

Beligond was preceded by Geo Ham and Jeudon and the switch to the new artist immediately gave a more realistic rendering of the race.

The car is going into the Dunlop curve, just having passed under the famous Dunlop bridge.

The night and the crowd are of course present but Beligond is not too concerned about depicting a real race but instead shows the make that was favorite for the 1958 race, Ferrari!

The race was indeed won by Olivier Gendebien and Phil Hill in their Nr. 14 Ferrari 250 TR58 0728TR with a total of 305 laps to their name.

For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1958.

This poster is VERY scarce and will be shipped, rolled, is a VERY sturdy (PVC) tube.

1959 24 Hours of Le Mans Poster REPRODUCTION

1959 Le Mans Race Poster REPRODUCTION.

June 20 & 21, 1959.

It measures approximately:
16 x 22 inches
40 x 56 cm

The 1959 Le Mans poster is 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 Beligond were hired for the design of the race posters.

The design of the 1959 poster was by Michel Beligond and was his second work for the Le Mans 24 hours race.

Beligond was preceded by Geo Ham and Jeudon and the switch to this relatively new artist immediately gave a more realistic rendering of the race.

The drivers running towards their cars in the typical Le Mans start with the international flag flying over the pit box building. With a little good will, one can see a Ferrari and a Jaguar ready to be taken to the tarmac by their sprinting drivers.

The race was won by Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby in their Nr 5 Aston Martin DBR1/300 (S/N 2) with a total of 323 laps to their name.
