With no interstate system and most driving done locally in hometown USA, I would imagine the miles did not accumulate as quickly in 1951.

If you have an engine with no oil filter and non detergent oil, 1K miles is a pretty long OCI. Believe it or not, there was life prior to 2008 and things were different than today.

In the early to mid 60"s I changed QState every 2K in my 63 Plymouth Valiant. Results: After 45K my Slant Six engine had a lot of sludge.

My dad knew a guy in my hometown, that brought his CAddy in every week to get the oil changed. Most times it had about 50 miles on the oil.

When I started driving 2K OCI's were the norm.

I started working in my dad's ESSO service station in 1957 and yes things were very different back then. 1K OCI's were not uncommon and 2K OCI's were more the norm on modern cars in 1957-1961 while I was working there. Some cars had oil filters and some did not.

Demarpaint they didn't have to change the oil in the horse and wagon smile
And I really didn't think you are anywhere near being that old.

If I recall correctly, service interval on the old VWs was 1500 miles. Change oil, clean strainer, etc. I think the valves had to be set and spark plugs cleaned and gapped around every other oil change. I thought I died and went to heaven when I bought a GM in the mid '80s with 20k mile spark plugs.
