Inspiration: 60+ Vintage Automobile Ads

by
Languages:

We all love vintage design - it's a great source of inspiration, and we all enjoy seeing how technology has developed over the decades. I have collected and compiled a huge (62 advertisements in total) showcase of vintage car magazine advertisements and posters.

Many styles and trends have been used throughout the years in car advertisement design, from simple black and white illustrations to beautiful watercolor paintings and great photography to clear, bold typography.

The advertisements are displayed by the car make/brand in alphabetical order. What's your favorite?
