I have to get my 86 grand marque ready for winter here and was just wondering what type of oil is used when you get the under side of your car oiled. Does anyone know?

You can try Henry Plastic Roof Cement from Home Depot or cosmolene or P.O.R.15 this, However is the first that I ever hear of oiling the underbody of a car.

Here is the link where I got the Information on the plastic roof cement from.

Don't you mean getting your car LUBED? Like the suspension parts, etc?

no, i live out in the coutry, and there are a couple places out here that do under car oiling. they spray some type of oil on the under side of the car to protect it from rust. I have had it done for several years now. Its not any of those rubberized undercoatings or any hard coating. it looks like your oil pan massively exploded and soaked everything.

If you remember I am getting a divorce and prior to this I was building a bad to the bone 393 stroker vict jr heads dig 6 ign the hole nine yards she put in storage and wont let me near it. New 70s c-4 3000 stall converter 57 ford 9 inch. everything I was saving and acumulating is gone all waterpump all radiator all tig welded new gas tank braided fuel line fitting,Msd billet dizzy.Wipping tears from face now,anyways the motor was swapped to this piece of crap I have now which sat in my wifes red one I restored for her over the past 7-8 years. I took my 289 out to rebuild it as well (it would run 13's at least) now this one has bad rings guides flat springs you name it. But it was all I had and I have no money now to do any major work.I will be back up and running befor to long..trust me..

There are{were} some garages in the country around here that used to do that. They would use used engine oil and cut it with a little K-1 to get it through a spray gun. What a mess. Your car would smell for weeks if it got on the exhaust. I bet more than one car caught fire that way.

Nowadays the DEP would be so far in your A** that you would've wished that you drank the oil instead.

That was a regular practice for a lot of people here in the Northeast. The original owner of my Galaxie painted the chasis and under body every fall with used engine oil. Probably the reason that there isn't a spot of rust or rot anywhere on mine. Rare to have an original rust free classic here in RI.
