Hi all, newcomer to forums, just wondering is there anyone out there working on or with a 26 Reo speedwagon, I am chasing a manual or any information I can get. I have a blog reoresto.wordpress if you want to have a look.
The REO Motor Car Company was a Lansing, Michigan-based company that produced automobiles and trucks from 1905 to 1975. At one point the company also manufactured buses on its truck platforms.
Ransom E. Olds was an entrepreneur who founded multiple companies in the automobile industry. In 1897 Olds founded the Olds Motor Vehicle Company (later, as Oldsmobile, to become a part of General Motors). In 1905 Olds left Oldsmobile and established a new company, REO Motor Car Company, in Lansing, Michigan. Olds had 52 percent of the stock and the titles of president and general manager. To ensure a reliable supply of parts, he organized a number of subsidiary firms like the National Coil Company, the Michigan Screw Company, and the Atlas Drop Forge Company.
Thanks, i would like to find the unrestored one you have the pics of, looks goood, Carby and radiator emblem are the big ticket items I am missing, time and patience will be the go.
it appears to be a reasonably rare one, have not seen many around, love the photos, the black one in Canada is my benchmark.
