1967 Esso Car Care Guide (excerpts)


I acquired a 1967 Esso Car Care Guide somewhere in my travels.  This was obviously a Canadian publication.  It's about 12 inches by 12 inches, wire bound and about 100 pages.  It covers everything from Acadians to Volvos, and includes graphics showing all the lube points, and provides all tune up specs (timing, spark gap, dwell, initial carb settings, etc.).  I thought it was kind of cool.

It lists Acadians, Beaumonts, and Pontiacs separately, and also breaks Canadian and American Pontiacs out on separate pages.

I have these as a PDF, but couldn't upload it here so I converted them to individual jpegs.  PM me with your email address if you want these as a PDF file.  I didn't scan the rest of the book, these 13 pages only.

Was just flipping through the rest of the book. It lists the 1960 Frontenac on the same page as the 1960-62 Ford Falcon. Sunbeams, Renaults, Austin, Austin-Morris (Mini, Mini Cooper & Cooper S), Ford English (Anglia, Consul, Consul Capri, and Cortina), Hillman, Sunbeam, Mercury, Meteors, M.G. (MG, MGA, MGB, Morris, Riley Princess and Wolseley), Rambler, Studebaker (All models except Avanti), Triumph (TR2 through TR4A, Spitfire, Herald, Triumph 12/50 and Sport Six), Valiant is listed separate from Dodge, Chrysler or Plymouth. Vauxhall, Volkswagen & Volvo.
Quite a few models I've never seen.
It also lists the oils for chainsaws.& outboards.

And an interesting letter, dated May 19, 1967 from the Esso Coordinator, Petroleum Products taped inside the front cover, basically chewing out the area sales managers for not pushing Ford ATF ("Glide")...

An interesting piece of history.

Certainly an interesting piece of history. Shows how the corner garage used to play a big part in servicing our cars. Compare this to today where service(?) stations won't even pump your gas or clean your windshield.
