1962 Corvair by Chevrolet.

Stout "Scarab" Automobile Ad.

By AUTOMOTIVE INNOVATION CIRCA 1935)

Dearborn, Michigan.: Stout Motor Car Corporation.. 1935.. 1935 color advertisement for the Stout "Scarab" automobile on sheet 14 x 11 inches. Ad predicts "the new Scarab will set all future styles in motor cars," a prophesy based substantially on wishful thinking. However, the automobile did feature all manner of innovations. The ad states "Production for 1936 will be limited to 100 cars" with prices beginning at five thousand dollars. (Evidently production was a fraction of the 100 car limit.) Only a handful of Scarab’s are known to exist today. Ad in very good clean condition. The scarab, or dung beetle, was regarded as sacred by the ancient Egyptians, but perhaps this was not the best choice in naming a newly-launched and expensive vehicle of unconventional design. In any event, an uncommon and interesting Depression-era automotive advertisement. .
