My wife’s grandfather, Filip Hult, bought a Reo Royale in 1932 from an American tourist visiting Sweden. We are trying track the car and have heard that the car was sold back to someone in Chicago. Can anyone in the forum help us to find where Filip Hult’s Reo “disappeared”?
My wife and I are going to Chicago in March next year, it would be fantastic if we were able to see the car (if the rumor is true)
There hasn't been to many Royales in Sweden... There ara thread about Royales in europe in the forum. One post handles a sedan that in the 70-ties was owned by a Åkerblom. I think is the car on the pictures below. The b/w picture is from a car show in 1966 in Uppsala i think and the other one is a postcard from about 1970...
I don't know if it is Filip´s car but it is not unlikely. Do you have any pictures of the car or a registration nr.
Hej Som jag skrev längre upp så är det få Royales som gått genom Sverige. Den på bilderna ska ha varit köpt av en amerikan som reste i europa 1931-32 och ska sedan blivit kvar i Sverige. Bilderna är från 1966 och kanske ca 1970. Var bilen är nu vet jag inte. Naturligtvis vet jag inte heller om det är Filips Royale. Kolla under tråden om Royales i europa så rinns det ett urklipp som säger lite mer om denna bil. Tyvärr är den dåvarande ägaren Åkerblom död. Jag har inte försökt få tag i någon efterlevande. Har ni någon bild eller ett dåvarande reg nr när Filip ägde den så kan det ju enklare gå att spåra. Den här försäljningen av bil till Chicago vad vet ni om den?

davidsnow: Just saying hello as a new member. Thank you to John Phillips for reaching out and letting me know about the forum. I live in Wisconsin and have been in the REO club for several years. My wife and I currently are serving as custodians of REO merchandise.

harley: My attempt at creating a thread with an attachment of the Royale stationary does not seem to allow the attachment to open for view. What did I not do correctly? This is my first time on a forum so it is all new to me. (Harley)

coley: Hi John and Mark. Coley here. Making more REO door handles. I need to find a supplier for the lock cylinder and keys for the outer locking door handles for a 1930 flying cloud and others. Or a handle with keys.
