1931 Reo Royale Sedan 35N Series The Reo brand of prestige automobiles was founded by R.E. Olds and was exported to several countries including New Zealand. This model is now quite rare in NZ and needs a new caretaker. It has been in our family for the past 50 years during which time it has been driven and stored undercover. The REO engine was very popular and later used in commercial vehicles. It is a straight eight cylinder,5861 cc with 125bhp. It runs well and has done 68,000 miles. Recent work includes a new mechanical fuel pump, reconditioned carburettor, new spark leads and spark plugs. The brakes are hydraulic and have recently been overhauled. The tyres are in good condition with 2 spares. The electrics are still 6 volt and the battery is new. The body was designed by Murray Corp and is in good original condition. There is some wear on the fabric in places. Very little superficial rust is evident. The paint is original with a couple of chips. Minor work required on the lights. A handbook, spare head gasket and luggage trunk are included. Registration is on hold.

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)
