Very rare original movie poster for the Fangio 'Una Vita a 300 All'Ora' documentary film released in 1981, combined with a RICO of Spain, tin plate friction drive toy car.
The poster depicts Fangio drifting the Lancia-Ferrari D50 in front of an F1 car of the then modern era. The movie was banned in a number of countries as both the Director & Producer refused to bow to the censor's demands to remove some of the more horrific accident footage, include the Le Mans race of 1955.
The RICO tin plate friction toy dates from the time when Fangio was at the height of his career in the 1950s. The tin plate body is litho printed with the name, number and various sponsors' livery. It is play worn and although the friction drive does work, it is not as efficient as it would have been new, so we are selling it as a display piece only.
The 5 times World Grand Prix Champion is considered by many to be the Godfather of modern motor-racing. Juan Manuel Fangio was born in Argentina in 1911, but didn't start his Grand Prix career until 1948, before going on to win the championship in 1951, 1954, 1955, 1956 & 1957 and then retiring in 1958, having won 24 of the 52 Grand Prix races he entered - to this day the highest winning percentage of any driver.
