The 1967 Formula One season was, in many ways, a season of firsts. Jim Clark won the Dutch Grand Prix racing the Lotus 49—a car he was driving for the first time—in its very first outing. Dan Gurney became the first (and only) American driver to win a grand prix in a car of American construction at the Belgian Grand Prix, Honda became a first-time winner at the Italian Prix with John Surtees aboard and, for the first and, perhaps, only time, every full-time constructor except Ferrari and BRM won a championship race. Coincidentally, it was also the last season before the introduction of aero elements to the sport.
And that’s just the cars. The drivers for the 1967 reads like a who’s who of legendary grand prix drivers—Jim Clark, John Surtees, Dan Gurney, Jack Brabham, Pedro Rodriguez, and Denny Hulme were the race winning drivers that year among a competitive group that also included Graham Hill, Jochen Rindt, Jacky Icyx, Bruce McClaren, David Hobbs, Jo Siffert, Chirs Amon, John Surtees, and Jo Bonnier to name just a few. Sadly it was also the year that the great Lorenzo Bandini died in a fiery crash at the Monaco Grand Prix and the year the sport lost Brabham driver Bob Anderson who died while testing at Silverstone.

Press runs on the Formula One series prints will be extremely limited—only 25 of each car will be pressed. Because of the extremely limited availability, for the first time, I will be offering a deposit feature on advanced sales that will allow you to reserve a print, or prints, of your choosing. Deposit amount per/print is $75 with balance(s) on advance sales prints due upon shipment.
