Vintage 1928 Photo of the Stutz Black Hawk of Brisson and Bloch at the 24 Hours of Le Mans

Vintage 1928 Photo of the Stutz Black Hawk of Brisson and Bloch at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

This is a vintage photograph of the Nr 1 Stutz Black Hawk (Bearcat) of Edouard Brisson and Robert Bloch during a daytime pitstop at the 1928 24 heures du Mans (or the 6th Grand Prix d'Endurance as it was officially called back then).

Brisson and Block would go on to score a second place in the race, a mere 1 lap behind the winners Woolf Barnato and Bernard Rubin in their Bentley 4½ Litre.

Please note that this is VINTAGE photo, printed shortly after the original image was captured on film.

Dimensions: approximately 5 x 3.5 inches or 12 x 9 cm.

Decent condition for its age but, as visible in the scan, there is paper loss in the corners.

The race was won by Woolf Barnato and Bernard Rubin in their Bentley 4½ Litre with a total of 2669 km to their name.

For the full results of this race, please see 24 Heures du Mans results 1928.

Only 1 available.

Vintage 1949 Le Mans 24 Hours by Roger Labric and Geo Ham - NUMBERED EDITION

Vintage 1949 Le Mans 24 Hours by Roger Labric and Geo Ham.

This book, issued in 1949 by the A.C.O. (organizing body of the 24 Heures du Mans), if often considered as THE prized possession for serious Le Mans collectors.

This is one of the VERY few surviving NUMBERED copies!

As a matter of fact, this number 528 of the 1000 numbered copies that were issued.

VERY scarce as in our 15+ years of trading Le Mans memorabilia, this is the very first one we ever managed to source!

We are very proud to be able to offer for sale this book which survives in excellent condition for this book despite its slightly weak binding.

Being a BIG book, some 25 x 32 cm or 10 x 13 inches and 471 pages (it is some 6 cm or 2.5 inches thick!) it is a very detailed account of the 24 Hours races as held in the pre WW2 era (1923 - 1939) including stats and reports on the drivers with countless illustrations and portraits by the fantastic artist, Geo Ham (Georges Hamel).

Please note that this numbered edition is actually THICKER than the "regular" version despite having the exact same contents and same number of pages.

Very, VERY scarce and an absolute "must have" for the endearing Le Mans collector!

Only 1 available of course !

We offer FREE shipping to ANY destination in the world on this item but given its value, we advise you to take the optional insurance (available at check-out) on it.
