This poster is part of the so-called "Modern Photographic Approach" era in Le Mans posters which lasted from 1964 - 1971.
The layout and production of this poster were in the hands of Imprimerie Oberthur who realized this poster based on a color photograph, by Andre Delourmel, of the start of the 1967 edition.
It is in near mint condition for its age with some very minor wrinkling over a length of about 2 inches on the right hand border which doesn't distract from the overall appearance.
The race was won by Pedro Rodriguez & Lucien Bianchi in their # 9 John Wyer Ford GT40 with a total of 331 laps to their name.
