Hot Rod & Classic Car 10W-40 Motor Oil

Lucas Hot Rod & Classic Car Motor Oil SAE 10W-40 is manufactured with the highest quality paraffinic base oils and is fortified with a unique additive package containing high levels of zinc, molybdenum and phosphorus, which provides a tougher, thicker additive film for maximum protection even under the most severe conditions. It lowers oil temperatures, extends oil life and minimizes metal fatigue. It improves the film strength between the cylinder wall and piston rings and slows oil burning and improves pressure in worn engines. It has good cold temperature properties and stands up to high operating temperatures. It is compatible with methanol and all racing fuels, as well as with synthetic and non-synthetic oils.

Lucas Hot Rod & Classic Car Motor Oil SAE 10W-40 is for muscle, showroom, classic and trophy cars without catalytic converters. It can be used in racing applications. Not recommended for passenger car use.

Available in convenient 5 quart bottles, the formulation is perfect for the Hot Rod and Classic Car crowd with an increased zinc value of 2100 PPM. Because many of these very special machines often spend long periods off the roads, a number of the components of the additive package used in Lucas' Marine oils to provide rust and corrosion protection have been included in its unique formula.

Jerry Canfield uses Lucas Heavy Duty Oil Stabilizer in 1979 Dodge B300/Huntsman Motor Home

I was traveling South on US Hwy.441 over the Smokey Mountains from Gatlinburg, Tenn. towards Cherokee, NC. a half mile from the top of the up hill climb toward the state line of TN & NC, My motor home completely quit pulling, smoke came out from under the motor home, at the time I could not go forward or backwards, I was about 200 feet from a pull off and after a short prayer, I put it in Low 1, and it pulled it off the travel lane of the road, an hour and a half later I started the engine and proceeded toward the top, once at the top on level ground, I checked the fluid level, it was a couple of quarts low, the relief pop off valve released the pressure built up in the trans from the high temp and lack of any type of external transmission fluid cooler, so I had 1 Bottle of Lucas Automatic Trans. Fluid additive, I added it, prayed and headed toward Cherokee, NC. Once in Cherokee, I purchased another bottle of Lucas Trans. additive, and a couple quarts of auto-trans fluid! Brought the level up to the recommended level, and continued the 300 mile drive back home to Middle Georgia! Thanks for such a wonderful product as are all your Lucas additives!
