Please note that this poster is as shown in the pictures and it has clearly lead a rough life... It has been taped to a wall (which has left tape residue), small parts are missing, text has been "repaired" with a marker etc. Just look at the pictures and you'll understand what we mean.
Nevertheless, or probably thanks to its rough appearance, it oozes patina, just like an old racing car, which gives it an unrepeatable charm.
We have adjusted the price to reflect its condition.
This poster will be shipped, rolled, in a sturdy tube to prevent damage in transit.
This poster is VERY scarce and we only have 1 available.

Vintage June 1968 24 Heures du Mans Race Poster (Race was postponed to September due to strikes and student riots in Paris).
June 15 & 16, 1968.
The poster shows the start on the 1967 edition with the Ferrari 330 P3 S/N 0846 of Chris Amon and Nino Vaccarella heading the pack away from the start.
It is part of the so-called "Modern Photographic Approach" era in Le Mans posters which lasted from 1964 - 1971.
The layout and production of this poster were in the hands of Imprimerie Oberthur who realized this poster based on a color photograph, by Andre Delourmel, of the start of the 1967 edition.
The race was won by Pedro Rodriguez & Lucien Bianchi in their # 9 John Wyer Ford GT40 with a total of 331 laps to their name.
The 1968 race would prove to be a disaster for Ferrari with the ONLY Ferrari that made it to the finish being the Ferrari 250 LM of David Piper and Richard Attwood in 7th place.

It is in near mint condition for its age with some very minor wrinkling over a length of about 2 inches on the right hand border which doesn't distract from the overall appearance.
