1929 REO Flying Cloud

The Reo company was founded by Ransom E. Olds in 1905 after he left the Olds company. Reo produced quality higher-priced cars including this one, the Flying Cloud, built from 1927-36, and named after the clipper ship of the same name. It was powered by a 4.3 litre in-line six and used a 3 speed transmission. It is credited with being the first automobile with four wheel hydraulic brakes.
