    I am interested in a 1967 24 hours le mans poster which shows two 275 GTB models at the starting grid.

    Full color reprints of the Le Mans posters from 1966-67-68 were available for $3.95 in the late Sixties, so watch out for reprints being sold as originals.

    Thank you for the tip. A Repro is ok with me, it's just for the garage. I have searched but no luck.

    I've had a 1968 Le Mans poster for years and years. How do I tell if it is a reprint?

    How to tell if it's a reprint? Not sure. I found one of the old ads, in the back of "Road Test" magazine, July 1969. It IS $3.95 for the 1967 Le Mans poster. The seller is "Grand Prix Posters" in Harbor City, California. There is a b&w picture of the poster, but they are advertised as "high quality full color". It looks like most of the advertised posters have a small circle in the lower left corner, which I would guess is a stamp from the printer. I have compared the poster in the ad with a genuine poster clearly shown in my copy of "Piloti che Gente" (p. 224). The genuine poster does not have this small circle, but it has a small row of lettering in lower left corner. It appears to say something like "Maguatto et realization impremeries obert..." Does that help?
