Your friend has good taste. That oil would be great for both of his vehicles.

Not just could be, but is. Quaker State and Pennzoil were Pennsylvania crude based oils until the late 80's. Kendall and Amalie were until the latter mid nineties.

back in the day when straight weight ruled, 20W was popular in the winter.
$2.27 a quart for an old, outdated group 1 straight-weight oil vs a modern multi-grade oil on sale at Napa today for $1.99 a quart plus tax ='S no thanks.

Modern oil is boring. Vintage monograde is where it's at.

The 20W-20 would be perfect for any application calling for a thirty grade as would the SAE 30.
Five hundred bucks for fifty five gallons of oil would be pretty reasonable.
From what I could see, this looks like API SE, so a fairly obsolete spec that worked when we used it back in the seventies and early eighties.
These would not be long drain oils but for the dollars the days of 3K drains could be brought back to life.
OTOH, there have recently been better deals on more modern and arguably better oils, like the clearance Havoline from O'Reilly's or the clearance Rotella T5 from AZ.

$2.20'ish per quart.

Don't you guys in the USA get $1 per quart deals on modern oil now and then?
