Black and white 5" x 11 1/2" ad that sends the message that anyone, even women, can know enough about cars to know that using Quaker State Motor Oil is good for a car engine. The ad has a picture of Miss Marion Clayton of Chatham, N.J. sitting in the driver's seat of her car under the headline "So we don't know much about Cars!" and goes into detail about how her Chevy has just turned 35,000 miles and that motor repairs have only totaled $4.95. This ad is taller than my scanner bed so the outer edges of the ad will not be visible in the scanned view.

Quaker 7

Black and white 4 3/4" x 11 1/2" ad for the oil that goes farther. The ad has a drawing of a laughing Dr. Wood under the headline "Was I Dumb!". Dr Wood has written a letter to Quaker from which excerpts appear in this ad. In the letter he talks about how he has always used Quaker Oil until "someone induced me to try another brand". He had been happy using Quaker because he was always able to drive "1000 to 1100 miles without adding oil". At the other person's suggestion he had his Chrysler drained and filled with the other brand, "drove 900 miles, and during this time added 3 quarts". He was told that he needed a heavier grade "So I refilled as directed and had to add another 3 quarts". Dr Wood returned to using Quaker and was able to drive 1000 miles "without adding a drop". The ad explains this ability to go farther without needing to replace oil as being due to to Quaker State's "extra quart of lubrication in every gallon".

The ad headline calls this the "Care-free days of youth" and the ad text claims that you can "Keep young by casting off unnecessary cares". The ad mentions that a quart of this oil was priced at 35 cents and talks about the First Quart Test. This test consisted of "1. Drain crancase and refill with Quaker State. 2. Note the mileage: and "3. See how far you go before you have to add the telltale first quart".
