ON 19TH MARCH 1899, CHARLES 'CHEERS' WAKEFIELD SET UP AN OIL COMPANY IN ENGLAND. TEN YEARS LATER, HE PRODUCED A NEW LUBRICANT THAT WOULD REVOLUTIONISE TRANSPORT IN THE FIRST HALF OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY.
HE CALLED THE NEW OIL CASTROL.
Established in 1899, originally as C.C.Wakefield, Castrol launched their first lubricant for cars in 1906 and has been at the leading edge of motor technology ever since.
Choosing the right engine oil for your veteran, vintage or classic vehicle is essential for ensuring peak running condition and maximum wear protection for your engine.
To make this decision easier, Castrol produce a range of famous Classic oil brands to the correct formulations and viscosities as originally recommended by the vehicle manufacturers, but now using the latest technology, where appropriate, and low detergent formulations to protect your veteran, vintage and classic vehicle.
Historically, many motor manufacturers recommend Castrol by name in their original vehicle handbooks and now today's owners are able to follow those original recommendations.
Castrol’s oil recommendations for vintage, veteran and classic vehicles date back to the turn of the last century.
