Vintage 1954 Photo, Ferrari 375 Plus S/N 0396AM, victorious at the 24 Heures du Mans.

This is a vintage 1954 photo of the Ferrari 375 Plus of Froilan Gonzales and Maurice Trintignant at the finish of the 1954 running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The duo raked up 302 laps or a royal 4,016 kms, 1 lap more than Tony Rolt and Duncan Hamilton in their D-Type Jaguar.

This is a vintage print, i.e. printed shortly after the original image was captured on film.

The photo measures some 8.5 x 11 inches and is in mint condition and carries the stamp NO photographer's stamp on the back.
