The World's First Car Ad From 1898

In 1898, the Winton Motor Carriage Company took out an ad in Scientific American for its horse-free, hydrocarbon motored Winton Motor Carriage. The ad was the first of its kind and even brought in a customer. Robert Allison of Port Carbon, Pennsylvania became first person to purchase a Winton automobile after seeing the world's first car advert. Wikipedia
