Magazine Art: Automobiles, Trucks, and Wagons

Automobile ads kept magazines going through good times and hard. High-ticket items, they could afford to pay for color reproduction when that was too expensive for most other products. Everybody knows something about cars! Some of these ads were created by the best artists in the business. And some of them are just fun to look at as nostalgia; or, if you prefer, ancient history. Trucks here, too. Also wagons and carriages.

Ad for Willys-Overland Automobiles, with art by famed illustrator and cover artist Herbert Paus, from the November 23, 1916 issue of LIFE, the Humor Magazine. Put the windows down (with disappearing sashes), and the sedan becomes something like a touring car; an early convertible design. It's a Touring Sedan.

The safest car now made even safer. Eight body styles, shown here large and small. The art is a peculiar combination of the hood ornament/radiator cap, "The symbol of Safety" (though that's not the first thing one might say it represents), shown apparently as a piece of statuary in a wooded glen. Rich people stand by it, near their large Stutz. Toward the right, a structure of some sort hides among the trees, and at the right edge a rider and a small car come left toward the statue...

First of a year's worth of Stutz ads from AMERICAN MERCURY shows classic side view of the full-sized limousine model. With advanced safety features, Stutz aims to make its cars stand out. In future ads it will harp on Safety as its watchword, claiming that 1926 is as major a design change year as 1924 was. Beginning in July of 1926 the ads changed from simply showing the car, to showing it in a traveling context with lots of background. The February, 1927 and some later ads were signed by...

Same ad as -1911A, but in black and white; compare and contrast. Man takes three women out for a drive in the countryside, in their Stevens-Duryea Six, with its "unit power plant" mounted on "three points." The painting is just as remarkable an example of late Nouveau, but it loses a lot in the absence of color. The artist's initials have disappeared in this version. Is the man the women's staff driver, or their husband and father? Published in the May 1, 1911 issue of the...

Ad for Marmon Automobiles, from the October 26, 1911 issue of LIFE, the Humor Magazine. Manufactured by a company that had already been producing flour-milling machinery for sixty years; so why not buy their car. The original size of this ad was 5.7 x 8 inches.

Older driver stops to assure younger man that he still thinks his Marmon is a Great Automobile, now that he's had a chance to use it for a while. Word of mouth, the best advertising, subsumed into this explicit hard sell. Published in the January, 1926 issue of GOLDEN BOOK.

Ad for the Locomobile Six, shown on Riverside Drive in New York City. Hey, that's Grant's Tomb on the left. Published in the October 26, 1911 issue of LIFE, the Humor Magazine. With ten-inch upholstery, "your chauffeur does not have to slow up for cross-walks, car-tracks, or rough spots in the streets." The rough spots may be hard on the tires and suspension, but that's nothing compared to the dents you'll get from the pedestrians you hit if you don't slow up for the cross-walks.
