Len, you should drive your car more! My old Alfa buddy and I drove my 59 nearly 200 miles in one day, last summer, reliving our younger days. Yikes, I had forgotten what an aggressive driver my friend could be, once we got on some open roads in Worcester County!
Personally, I think that the first oil change on a fresh engine is crucial, and I would probably change it sooner that 300 miles, in the case of a restored antique engine. Do you think that the people who put your car together might have done an oil change after a brief operation of the engine? Given the care and skill that they put into your car, I wouldn't be surprise to learn that they did. - Tom
