There are a number of engine oils on the market today, but several of them have been formulated without modern, daily drivers in mind. When it comes to our collector cars, many will seek out the few mineral or synthetic engine oils containing zinc and phosphorous, also known as ZDDP. That small list has since grown, with the addition of Comp Cams Muscle Car and Street Rod Engine Oil.
Comp Cams’ new, extensively dyno-tested/proven engine oil is a blended synthetic formula designed for use in engines originally equipped with mineral oil, but without the unwanted ingredients that cause rust and corrosion. The positives for collector-car owners are that this oil contains “corrosion fighting” additives, detergents and “optimum amounts of ZDDP” to prevent wear, and because it was designed with regular use and prolonged storage (think winter months) in mind, it’s reported that the oil is compatible with all gaskets and seals. Additionally, it “will not create sludge, varnish or choke internal engine surfaces.” Finally, this oil does not require the use of other additives or supplements.
Comp Cams Muscle Car and Street Rod Engine Oil is available in 10W30 and 15W50 formulas in one-quart bottles costing $7.35; a case of 12 costs $88.20 (ground shipping only). For more information, including ordering, call 800-999-0853, or visit www.compcams.com.
