1 of 325
6 Cylinder Motor
REO Was Named for Ransom Eli Olds,
Founder of Olds Motor Works
later to become Oldmobile.
He left the original company and
began again on his own,
building cars, trucks and buses,
all under the REO name.
REO Floundered, but Oldsmobile went on
with Buick and Cadillac to form General Motors.
Reo Announced "America's Finest Six"
in November 1935,
but it was just an A-6 with fuller fenders,
rubber-tipped bumper guards,
optional "Zeppelin-style" fender lamps,
and a reworked hood and radiator
wearing bright trim a la Pontiac's "Silver Streaks."
The Self-Shifter was canned for conventional
over-drive as a $50 extra for
Standard and DeLuxe models
priced at $795-$895.
But public confidence in Reo had nearly evaporated,
so the firm built a mere 3206 cars that year,
versus 4692 for calendar year 1935 and
only 325 the following year, 1936
that being the last year of their automobile production.
This Car Is Very Complete and Runs Great.
It's Not a Show Car
But a Very Very Nice Cruiser,
Registered and Title In Hand.
