Full Tank

More wonderful original artwork for a 1955 newspaper section presenting some of the "many delights and wonders that are yours to enjoy at Disneyland."

Rough Layout

The text for this page:

"Everyone from seven to seventy will thrill to a ride over the Richfield Autopia at Disneyland.  Located in Tomorrowland, the Autopia includes the half-mile modern freeway shown below.  Large enough for adults, the Autopia cars are powered by gasoline engines fueled with New Richfield Ethyl.  

"They are truly fun to drive, yet absolutely safe.  Be sure also to see the exciting, free Richfield Show, "The World Beneath Us," near the Autopia.  Here you'll see a new Walt Disney Studios film in Technicolor and Cinemascope, and the world's most unusual Diorama.

 Final Sketch

"Before you set out for Disneyland, ask your Richfield dealer 
for the colorful, informative Official Disneyland Map.


It shows you the easiest ways to reach Disneyland. It's Free -- compliments of your local Richfield dealer."

Hop in!
