1Title:  Automobile advertisements series, 1903-1994 (bulk 1923-1959) Requires cookie*
 Accession:  19 
 Creator:  Ford Motor Company. 
 Abstract:  The Automobile Advertisements series contains advertisements for the Edsel, Ford, Lincoln and Mercury cars. Special use automobiles, such as police cars and taxis, as well as advertisements for dealer shows featuring new models are also found in this series. The advertisements are arranged by size. Within each size category the advertisements are arranged alphabetically by make, chronologically by model year and then alphabetically by title of the advertisement. When there is no applicable model year, the date has been determined by the date of publication. Advertisements which feature the full line of Ford Motor Company automobiles have been organized with the ads entitled Ford, unless the illustrations or text refers to a specific make and then is filed in the appropriate grouping. Likewise, advertisements which feature both Lincoln and Mercury automobiles have been placed with Lincoln. Although there were no automobiles produced during 1942-1945 model years, there were advertisements in 1945 promoting the resumption of new models for the 1946 model year. These advertisements have been designated as 1945 advertisements whereas the 1946 advertisements focus on the features of the actual 1946 models.
