1953 Carrera Panamericana Mexico original event poster.
This rare original poster was published for the 4th running of this famous event, which was won by Juan Manuel Fangio in his Lancia D24. This 30×23″ linen backed poster is in A- condition with minor handling wear (mostly to the edges), but it looks great for its age and bears a lovely patina. This is one of two styles of posters published for this event, and we have not seen another like it in well over a decade!
Scuderia Lancia swept the top three positions with Fangio / Bronzoni taking First in their Lancia D24 (s/n #0004), followed by Taruffi / Maggio in their sister D24, and Castellotti / Luoni in their Lancia D23. Fourth & Sixth places went to Ferrari 375 MMs with Fifth to a Talbot-Lago T26GS and then a whole host of Americana – Lincolns, Cadillacs, Oldsmobiles and Packards following. (NMP)
