Ferrari 250 LWB Berlinetta TdFS/N 1321GT1959
Vintage 1959 photo of Ferrari 250 LWB Berlinetta TdF S/N 1321GT at the Le Mans 24 Hours.
This is a vintage 1959 photo of the Garage Francorchamps entered Ferrari 250 TdF of Jean Beurlys & "Elde" during the 1959 running of the 24 Heures du Mans.
The duo managed 297 laps which was good for a 1st in class and 3rd overall behind the 2 Aston Martins of Shelby/Salvadori & Trintignant/Frere thus making it the highest placed Ferrari (!).
As far as known, this was the car's last racing outing and it now seems to reside in the USA.
The photo measures some 29.5 x 20 cm or 12 x 8 inches and is in near mint condition bar (non-sticky!) glue residue on the back.
The back carries NO references to the photographer.
This is a vintage print, i.e. printed shortly after the original image was captured on film.

1959 Le Mans Race Poster REPRODUCTION.
June 20 & 21, 1959.
It measures approximately:16 x 22 inches40 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.
