The Winton automobile

The Winton Motor Carriage Company was one of the first American companies to
sell a motor car. On March 24, 1898, 70 year old Robert Allison of Port Carbon, Pennsylvania became the first person to buy a Winton after seeing the first ad for
a automobile in Scientific American magazine. The company later bought the car
back and donated it to the Smithsonian Museum in 1929.
