    I am looking for good quality Tail Photo(s) of 1967, 275 GTB # 29, at Le Mans Starting Grid.
    Other photos, without the mechanics in the way, would be great too.

    Thank you.

    Regards, Alberto

    Don't you mean car number 28 which was 275 GTB/C chassis number 09079? Car number 29 was a Matra At Le Mans 1967.

    Alberto, I think that pic is actually from Le Mans, 1966. RHD 275 GTB/C 09035 driven by Piers Courage and Roy Pike.

    Steven, of course, they could not print a 1967 race poster of the actual year,
    unless the printing presses at Le Mans, were prescient :)

    You are absolutely right, it was '66.

    Thank you.
    Regards, Alberto

    Thank you very much Marcel.
    Rosso Chiaro 20-R-190, is easy enough, or so it appears. Cambridge Blue, Googled it, a bit challenging.
    What was the reason of this particular blue? Possibly another 275 in red in same race, and avoid confusion? Or, Col. Hoare's favourite?

    Regards, Alberto

    Cambridge Blue is the color of Maranello Concessionaires.
    Have a look in the Maranello Concessionaires book "The Colonel's Ferraris" (Osprey Publishing) by Doug Nye.

    Well, got my copy, lovely book, all the photos are B&W, except the cover, so I am back to square 1.
    Anybody have a good, high resolution photo of said 'rear end' ?

    Regards, Alberto
