Hello ODK history lovers
BP Zoom was a pre-mixed fuel-oil introduced by BP [British Petroleum]
in January, 1960. It would cater for the surge in popularity of 2-stroke
motor mowers, outboards and scooters in Australia at that time.

It was only by the end of that decade that Victa and BP would
realise the marketing advantage of cross-promotion. A
commercial contract must have ensued.

The BP brochure I present here was made way before any
commercial collaboration between BP and Victa. In fact, Victa
gets no mention at all.

My best guess is that this is a very early BP Zoom brochure
from the early to mid-1960s.

PART TWO – The Brochure
This brochure is from my collection and it is in good condition.
As always, I make it available to members for viewing or as a quality download.

As a multi-fold brochure, it is somewhat difficult to present.
So, I just scanned each side ...
