I believe this is about a 1913 or 1914 REO. They were 8th and 6th behind Ford in production those years

Richard, Thanks for posting, looks like the mother or mother-in-law is already nervous about riding in an automobile and it's not even moving.

Happy motoring,

Warren

Rich,

I have a barn fresh 1913 Reo roadster and it has 2 electric side lights on the cowl along side the hood on the fire wall.

I believe this Reo is either a 1915 or 1916 as the cowl lights are not on the firewall.

Just another great photo.

just sayin'

Thanks for the insight. I haven't seen enough REO's those years to be up to speed on them. They sure are great cars.

I have a barn fresh 1908 2 cylinder gentelmans roadster and the barn fresh 1913 Reo roadster. They both are a great ride. The 2 cylinder is as powerful at a 20 hp 4, the 1913 is very powerful at 45 hp.

That car drives and shifts easy and has great brakes for its age. Ramsom Olds stated that his latest creation the 5th series Reo was the absolute best car he could design and build, just maybe he was right!!

I think the photo you posted might be a 6 cylinder

just sayin'

"brass car guy" just sent me some photos of his 1913 REO Roadster. It looks like a great car.





Thanks.
Rich

Automobile Engineering Vol. I 1920 showed these illustrations of REO as a "typical" automobile.
