Our Father bought out REO NSW etc in Australia after they closed in the early 1970s!

Even our main family car in the 1960s and 1970s was the last of the REO cars: A deluxe 1936 REO 6D Flying Cloud Sedan Australian version that had body assembled locally by Holden.
(Just a slightly different boot lid arrangement)

*Note: I MAY even consider SWAPPING one or two of these vintage buses or truck, and /or my sporty GT 660 Hillman Hunter FOR A HARLEY Davidson MOTORCYCLE (Maybe a late Street Bob?) or a Custom Chopper/Cruiser motorbike (Absolute Minimum Size 750cc) but it would need to be in excellent and reliable condition as I don't have time for any more projects*  Chrysler/JEEP SRT HEMI 6.4??

REO HISTORY:

 10 things you may not know about REO


en.wikipedia.org/wiki/REO_Motor_Car_Company


R.E.O. are the initials of 'Ransom Eli Olds' of Oldsmobile fame in the USA!

He left Oldsmobile and made a line of the Ultimate/ Premium vehicles which he was feeling held back with in the former business at that stage.

REOs were known as "The Worlds Toughest Truck" and led the way for decades, including in Australia!

REO_The_worlds_toughest_trucks



US_President_Roosevelt_rides_in_REO_motor_car_1907


US President Roosevelt rides in REO motor car 1907

REO were revolutionary and had many firsts including the hydraulic internal expanding brake systems, Pnuematic tyres on steel rims, shaft driven axles, electric starters and lighting etc. Cars featured styling by Fabio Segardi. While Ned Jordan is credited with changing the way advertising was written with his "Somewhere West of Laramie" ads for his Jordan Playboy, Reo's Flying Cloud car——a name that provoked evocative images of speed and lightness——changed the way automobiles would be named in the future.
Ransom Eli Olds was actually the first to implement the production line too!  (Not Henry Ford)

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

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!

OHV / Valves in-head. 292, 331 CID etc. High CHROMIUM NICKEL and 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.

These will only appreciate!

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!
.......................................................................................


Some vehicles don't run at present as we haven't tried,  but were running great just a few years back before Father "The REO Man" got too elderly.
Have just been turned off and then sat for a while. 
So with a basic going over, will start fine.

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 if needed)
 

For example a local one here often charges $5.50 per Kilometre total (charged 1 way only to deliver) which includes everything.

Or you can often arrange a backload from companies for a great price!

Simply go to Google Maps , enter your address, then destination Deepwater NSW 2371, then click Directions for the distance.

SOUTHERN HEMIฎ is a private family owned/non-profit venture set-up to help offset our own hobby costs, clear out excess old parts from our shelves that we no longer have room for following many decades of collecting, and to assist /support friends and fellow vintage vehicle hobbyists /collectors to find the now rare and very hard to get parts for our old antique/vintage vehicles that we all love, in order to assist in restoration and maintenance and keep the history alive!  

SINCE 1978 we have worked hard doing the right thing, and earned a reputation (And our family since the 1920's!) as some of the most honest people to deal with in the Classic/Vintage Vehicle scene and we highly value our fellow enthusiasts!  So please be assured that we always pack items very carefully, and we personally inspect all items carefully BEFORE dispatch to ensure a quality service.


"WE HAVE A RARE & UNIQUE all-round COMBINATION OF RICH EXPERIENCE" that is perfectly suited to this very niche/ specialised area! As we are also expertly trained & experienced in Packing, vehicle restoration, professional car detailing, complete vehicle dismantling, rebuilding, body/paint work, Sheetmetal work, TV/media camera & sound work video editing etc.  And fully qualified & certified in Engineering/Metal Fabrication/Welding,  
And to top it off, we are even professionally trained & certified in Computer I.T. to improve your experience and security!


 Due to the nature & age of these now Classic/rare vehicles... Generally for most items there are no actual refunds or returns on our parts for sale as even many of the 'new' parts are NOS and have been shelved for years to ensure we got them at best pricing & to ensure best stock available on these parts that are often very hard to find at all these days for these niche classics!  And often they are very rare New Old/Obsolete Stock Parts that we have searched the World for over many years using our research and hands-on specialised experience in most of these vehicles & parts accumulated by our family since the 1920s (Most parts have been shelved for decades) Note that specially ordered in, or one off/ not-regularly stocked and advertised items by us, or custom manufactured and/or modified goods are NOT eligible for exchange or credit and we are non-profit and only really do those to assist fellow enthusiasts while we are clearing everything anyway.

Any returns for credit or exchange will NOT be accepted without prior approval, and ultimately will be decided by us carefully as we see as fair, using our vast experience in these classic/vintage cars and parts.  Any exchange or credit MUST be requested within 14 days of the Invoice/order date and the buyer is responsible for return postage as is standard practice elsewhere. Also goods must be packed safely and returned via a tracked delivery service as a minimum (As they were sent) with the same/original packaging and in unused/resalable condition as we sent them to you. With ALL original bits & pieces that were originally included in the shipment.   Insurance is the buyers responsibility like anywhere else and can be requested on any purchase.  Once sent, items are out of our hands and responsibilty goes to the carrier. and we have no control over this as we are not Couriers or Australia Post.


 * Legal Disclaimer: Any discussion, text, Hints or information whatsoever provided by us on any page of our website or via communication of any sort is purely our own personal opinion from our own experience and is in no way to be considered as official or legal advice or instructions from us in any way. We accept no responsibility or liability in any way whatsoever, and if you don't understand exactly what you are doing and how to do it safely & correctly/best then you should always consult your own experienced and/or qualified person or business for advice or to complete the work.
