Yet another random odd bit of history tucked into a box of grandma’s correspondence. Not exactly sure why she saved this, but it’s advertising Sunoco’s gasoline product, “Nu-Blue” as “Quick Starting” and “A Hero Even Below Zero.” The “Fill Up Today At …” line is blank – there should be a stamp showing the gas station’s name in that spot. In the image, Donald Duck is dressed up in a hat, ear muffs, scarf, and mittens, holding a medal that says, “Quick Starting,” in front of a smiling, sunny gas pump. Via some search results, Nu-Blue started to be manufactured in about 1937, and there are bunches of advertisements from the 1940s all the way through about 1963. I find it pretty interesting to see a Disney character on an advertisement for gasoline though which is why I’m posting this here!
