Paris-Luxembourg, 1960s Race Used Car Plaque

Paris-Luxembourg
Race Used Car Plaque

Paris-Luxembourg only ran eight times from 1963 to 1970 but had an impressive list of winners during those years: Rudi Altig, Rio Van Looy, Jean Stablinski, Anatole Novak, Jan Janssen, Michele Dancelli, Eddy Merckx & Eric de Vlaminck. 

In today’s racing, the race organizer cars, team vehicles, and other participants of the official race caravan have disposable stickers affixed to the windshield. Slipping a bit into the way back machine, there was a time when the cars had plaques attached to the front of the follow cars.

As with most things ephemeral, most plaques were promptly tossed in the trash once the race was finished. The ones that survived have become quite collectible.
