Advertising Card for Sunoco Oil and U.S. Defense Bonds, 1942

Summary

American automakers turned their employees and facilities to the production of war materiel during World War II. Drivers had to make their current cars last -- there were no new replacements to buy. Sunoco Oil, with a little help from Mickey Mouse, encouraged drivers to protect their automobiles by using its motor oils.
