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.

It measures some 21 x 27 cm and counts 112 pages which are filled to the brim with information on the cars, the race and of course great period advertising.

It is in very good condition for its age and carries some notes on the individual contenders on the lap sheet.
