Herb,

This ad very specifically targets Physicians:

1. It is almost noiseless.
Can be driven up before a door without waking the patient or rousing alarm in any nervous person............" etc etc.....

hmmmmm, could be called "the burglar's car" too.

That is one I haven't seen before!

Do you have any more details on it?

Herb,

No, it was an advertisement by John Wanamaker. He was Ford's largest agent early on, with stores in New York and Philadelphia.
