Dave and Kim are long time members of the Reo Club of America and have a stable of beautiful REOs. I know that Dave has wanted a Royale for a long time and am glad that he found one. Please join me in welcoming Dave and Kim to the Reo Royale Forum and to the Royale Owners' Group informal email group. John
Welcome, Dave and Kim! It seems you certainly know your ways around old cars and Reo's in particular, but if I can be of any help with pictures (of which I have a lot) or information, please feel free to ask for it.
Hi, My name is Beecher, I have restored a couple cars over the last 17 years, and would not like to own the car my grandpartents drove while they were dating in 1947. A REO Royale! It was my grandfathers fathers car, he went from a 33 Flying Cloud coupe to I believe a 31 Royale, but its too late now to ask which body style, but I believe it was a Victoria based on what I remember hearing as a kid. I wasnt into cars when I heard the stories, but as a Kid I remember thinking it was strange to get a new car older than the last, but now that Im grown, I understand entirely! lol. Any leads would be appreciated on a Royale preferably. They lived in hamilton Ontario, if anyones car came out of that area! Hope to find one!

Welcome Beecher to our Forum . Royale's are hard to find I think in all of Canada there is about six Royale's we know about . Three in Ontario , two in Alberta and one in British Columbia . A few years ago there was a fellow in Tennessee who had one he started to hot rod there was not much of the original car left . Here is the contact information . All the best in your search . Mark

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)
