Thank you A J for posting these pictures of my newly acquired coupe. This completes my set of the 4 production models for 1931 Reo Royale 8-35s. Personally, I think the chromed side cover faces is way too much chrome and detracts from the car. We will leave it that way for now.
John, have you had a chance to drive it? I tend to agree with your assessment of the tire covers but thought I would rib you a bit. Paint the inside cover blue and throw some blackwalls on and you will be styling!
The Dragone brothers will have this at Amelia Island for sale. Unknown to us until now: 8000 miles Found in 1975 by Don Carlson and sold to John Peterson of East Hampton conn with 5000 miles. Peterson sold it to the man in Connecticut who had it .

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.
