Steve McQueen’s 1971 LeMans Poster

This Steve McQueen poster was not sold in stores, but was instead, a promotional item that was given as a premium at Gulf Oil gas stations.  I am not certain what you had to purchase in order to get the poster, but I am guessing it was probably a minimum amount of gasoline or maybe an oil change, or something along those line.

The poster shows, not just McQueen’s handsome face, but the car that he drove in the film.    The poster measures 17″ x 22″.  It is such a cool piece of history, that I had to include it here.  I wonder how many folks still have theirs?
