I think that is right. When Ralph Bowyer owned it he allowed me to look over the car closely. It was very precisely restored and beautifully done. I just wanted to make sure we followed the ownership chain so we don't add a 'new' car to the Royale convertible roster.

A few posts up Al posted a black and white factory photo of a convertible. My son found and sent the same picture to me, except that it had been colorized in 2017, with exactly the same "Clipper Blue" One would think it was my car, except for the fact that the old picture has no step plate on the rear fender for the rumble seat, whereas my car does have one of those.

This is a photo Harley Goff sent me, taken in 1931 at a car show, maybe New York or Paris he thinks. It was in black and white. I had a lady colorize it, using the blue colors of my car. I also had her colorize a picture of a ’29 Flying Cloud. Her work is usually quite good, depending on the colors wanted and the original photo. In addition to her colorizing that print I also had another fellow superimpose it on a nice colored background, as the original was all white. If anyone is interested in having them do any work let me know and I can send contact info. Carl Eidsness #445

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.
