1915 Reo Five-Passenger Touring Car
'Ransom Olds introduced “REO the Fifth,” his version of the REO automobile in 1912. At that time he initiated a center gearshift control, thus eliminating the previously cumbersome side lever and making the REO easy to drive. The REO had become popular, but Ransom Olds was unusual in the industry in not producing as many cars as he could sell.
The REO was known to be well made and dependable. This model has a 4 cylinder 35 hp engine with an electric starter. It is sharp with a fresh restoration, finished stunningly in red with gold accents; it sports a tan top and tan interior. The headlights and taillight work well, as the car is ready to be driven and enjoyed.'
