B. Red with cream roof coloured 1948 MACK Bus, Fair to good condition for age

1950s_REO_replacement_Gold_Comet_Engine_Guide_book

REO GOLD COMET Six Cylinder Petrol ENGINES were the very last and best produced by REO and the most powerful and efficient etc. 
They were very popular for upgrading other makes of Trucks & Buses, as they were considered the leading, modern cutting-edge engine of the day!
 

Valves in-head.  331 CID etc. They are also a wet-sleeve design. This means that the cylinder wall (sleeve) is a separately machined part that fits into the cylinder bores cast into the engine block. This enhances durability because the consistent wall thickness of the sleeve allows for consistent heat transfer, ensuring the cylinders stay round during thermal expansion. Additionally, the hardened cylinder sleeve is more durable and wear resistant than a softer, cast-in wall. Also, the replaceable cylinder sleeves protect the block from damage (e.g. in case of foreign objects entering the cylinder) and can easily be replaced, which enables simpler restoration to original specifications. The wet-sleeve design also allows the engine to be rebuilt easily to factory specifications, sometimes without even removing the engine from the vehicle.

  E. 1954 Cream and black coloured E21 REO Gold Comet COACH (Dents Nowra Huskison Royal Mail) Fair to Good Condition for age.  Needs quite a lot of rot and rust repairs on the bus body/side windows/roof area (Which is just simple similar construction to caravans in those sections)  But most importantly the Gorgeous main front pressed steel panels are in excellent condition for age and this is likely our best REO Bus mechanically, and is complete and original, but has sat a while, so will need a general going over and then should run/drive OK again as this used to be well maintained and drove great!

OK


Individual vehicle PRICES EACH Vary greatly from the very roughest one upwards.

However selling them for WAY less than actual market value these days and these will only appreciate!

Prices based on which ones you are after and their particular condition and desirability.



ALL vehicles are Super RARE, original and historically significant!!
Some of our Buses have featured in various Aussie movies over the years, and this is yet another way to make money with these rare Classics these days!
.......................................................................................

We wish to trim the fleet to tidy up and so more manageable, and we would rather see them ALL saved by going to those that will appreciate them for what they are, rather than some ending up eventually rotting away, by us being greedy and keeping too many of these original and historically significant gorgeous jewels for ourselves.  :)



Some vehicles don't run at present as we haven't tried,  but many were running great just a few years back before Father "The REO Man" got too elderly.

Nearly all have SIX CYLINDER PETROL engines with manual gearbox / transmission and mostly the REOs have the super robust and reliable Gold Comet etc, and these were the usual REO engines used in Australia.

............................................

Best TRANSPORT for you to arrange for vehicles is a low loader etc.

(We can provide some good heavy transport company contact details)

Vehicles will need some work to remove from back yard with a tractor or similar and many transport companies include this.
