Gulf Oil 1

Temporarily
Sold Out

Full color 9 1/2" x 13" ad for their Gulfpride Motor and their Gulfpride Single-G oils. The ad has a picture that shows a can of each of these with the caption "This is Gulf's best motor oil" over each. The ad text tries to explain how two different types of oil can be the best by talking about them being two different classes. This ad is larger than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

Gulf Oil 2

Full color 7 1/4" x 10 1/2" ad for their Gulfpride Single-G oil. There is a picture of a lady dressed up as though she was ready to do a parachute jump and she is walking past the front of a Green Ford T-Bird Landau while another man in a similar outfit checks his straps while standing by the back of this same car. The headline says that "Even though 345 horses makes you feel like flying, you don't need to feed them the most expensive motor oil. Just the best" with a can of this oil next to the last three words. The text talks about the improvements and efforts that Gulf has put into this oil which tests show equal or exceed the four leading competitive premium motor oils while costing as much as 25 cents per quart less.

Gulf 3

Full color 7 3/4" x 10 3/4" ad for their Gulfpride Formula G Motor Oil. There is a picture of a man at a quiet racetrack standing in his racing suit next to a race car looking at a red Cyclone on the foreground of the picture. The headline warns us that "Anyone who puts his foot into anything over 289 cubes better have more than mouse milk in his crankcase". Next to a can of this product it assures that "This new oil is a lot more". The text tries to explain exactly what "mouse milk" actually is before explaining what Gulfpride Formula A Racing Oil is. It tells us what races it has won in its two years of testing and that it is now available at you local Gulf station at reasonable prices.
