There are Color Pictures made at Le Mans 1951.
But this, first 340 A car on photo, isn't THE CAR we know.
The Owner wants to paint the car in the original color but unfortunately
only black and white pictures seem to exist of the car in both events.
There is doubt between red and medium blue.
Does anyone have color pictures
that could confirm the correct color ?
