Vintage 1970 Le Mans 24 Hours Flyer Handbill

Vintage 1970 Le Mans Race Handbill.

These flyers were handed out at the race to spectators to show them around the track.

Very scarce as most of them were tossed away after the race or disappeared into the mists of time.

Mint condition!

It measures 5.4 x 8.4 inches and unfolds to 21.6 x 8.4 inches.

The race itself was won by Richard Attwood & Hans Herrmann in their # 23 Porsche 917K (S/N 023) with a total of 343 laps to their name.

For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1970.

Vintage 1970 24 Hours of Le Mans Decal

Vintage 1970 24 Heures du Mans Race Decal.

Original car sticker for the 1970 running of the 24 Heures du Mans.

This decal is made to be an "inside window sticker" and is transparent. It is printed in "mirror script" so that when it is stuck to the inside of a window, the outside will show the correct image.

We are showing two images of this decal, one with the brown background which is what you will get when you buy this item. The brown background is caused by the paper covering the adhesive layer and which will be removed when you apply the sticker. The image with the white background shows what this sticker looks like when it is applied to a window (we played some digital imaging tricks to present you that image).

It measures some 4 x 8.5 inches or 10 x 21 cm.

Mint condition.

The race itself was won by Richard Attwood & Hans Herrmann in their Nr 23 Porsche 917K (S/N 023) with a total of 343 laps to their name.

For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1970.

Only a few available.
