In 1939, Chestien Wynn discovered a formula he named “Wynn’s Friction Proofing” Oil.
That was the foundation stone of Wynn Oil Company.
During the next 67 years Wynn’s expanded their business worldwide continuing the development of new technological advances to support the ever changing needs of the automotive business.
The establishment of a new world's land speed record in 1957 on the Bonnevillle Salt Flats by the Wynn's Friction Proofing "Streamliner" continued the company's high performance publicity.
Driven by Roy Leslie (a distributor) the sleek car, powered by three tandem engines, traveled more than 435 km/h (270 mph) to reach the best one-mile land speed ever obtained.
