Automobile Club de l’Ouest: ‘24 Heures du Mans, 1968’.

Stamped ‘Maquette de Realisation Imprimeries Oberthur’

A very rare set of all 3 variants of the Le Mans poster for the turbulent year of 1968. With growing student unrest in ‘les evenements’ of May ’68 in Paris, the race was postponed from its usual June date and virtually all the already-printed posters were pulped.

The middle poster, was considered unsuitable and the right-hand poster was selected as the final version. Despite invaluable publicity for Ferrari, the 1968 Le Mans was won by Rodriguez/Bianchi in the Ford GT40, with Ferrari finishing 7th overall.

All three posters framed ensuite, with an acid–free window mount with plaque, within a plain black oak section frame.

Overall framed size: 58 x 31 inches (147 x 80 cm).
