REO the Fifth, Black, for sale in Gladstone, Oregon, for $28,975.
Very rare and unique automobile. In 1904 Ransom Eli Olds started the REO Motor Company after being forced out of his first company called the R. E. Olds Company. His first REO was completed in October 1904 and was shown at the New York auto show in January 1905.
By 1912 R. E. Olds was preparing to leave the auto industry. The last car to showcase his talents was called "Reo the Fifth" or ST5. It was produced during 1912-14, this is a 1913 model. It is powered by a 240.5c. i. 4 cylinder F-head motor that produces 30-35hp.
This car appears to be mostly original and unrestored. The REO Company continued to produce cars and trucks from 1905 through 1936. R. E. Olds was a major force and influence in the early days of the American auto industry and did much to shape the industry as a whole. This is not only a classic car, it is a piece of automotive history.
