Tony Little letter to Texaco

Texaco Aviation advertisement with letter from Tony Little endorsing Texaco products.

“I sincerely believe that Texaco gas had a great deal to do with the fact that my ship won more races and more prize money at the Miami Air Meet than any other ship, and was responsible for the efficient service my motor gave me on the Florida Air Tour.”

Here are pictures of Monosport NC8974, which is the ship Tony refers to in his letter.
