Great Gimmick

Although, what is in it for the newspaper subscriber? This is an original postcard that was postmarked March 24, 1910. A new Model T Ford Touring had a factory price of $950, so it was quite a prize for selling newpaper subscriptions. I wonder if O.G. Nelson got his new Ford….

Not a new concern

These early motorists appeared in many different series of postcards all with this same Packard. The 1913 NY license plate shows better on other cards.
