1932-34 REO Coupe wanted

Recommended Posts

I would like to find a restorable 32-34 REO coupe project car. Prefer Model S but will consider other models and years. I’m posting this on several forums hoping someone has one for sale or knows someone who does. I need a project to keep me busy for the next two or three years. Any leads will be appreciated. 

 

Thanks, Steve

Hey Steve, I was told about your search through mark. 

I am confused about you asking for a 32-34, but then asking for a model S which looks to be 1910

Anyways, if you give me your price range, I can help you find something that you are interested in. 

He forwarded you one I had found already that is a project, but I can find more out there. 

I bought a fully restored 31 sedan for 6,700. I don’t know what condition you want yours in, other than you want to fix it up yourself. 

Anyways I will most likely be at Hershey if you can make it. 

Other than that just let me know more information about what your wanting and I will try my hardest to look around.

My email is Superflame107@aol.com

Have a good day

Disclaimer: I am NOT a REO expert, however the information I have was gleaned from reliable sources. Others with more accurate information are encouraged to correct my post. 

 

It it is my understanding that REO introduced the Model S in 1932 as a budget model with a 117” wheelbase to try to save the company. The 1932 car has a 230 Cu. In. 6 cylinder engine with the generator driven by the fan belt instead of the timing chain as previous models. In 1933 they installed a 268 Cu. In. engine and made a few mechanical improvements and called it an S2 model. In 1934 there was a S2 standard and a S3 deluxe model. That’s all I know and am not 100% sure of the accuracy of the above statements. 

 

I have a 1932 Model S Sport Sedan (dual side mounts) and am looking for a companion coupe.

Not sure what that would go for,  but you might be better off spending a little more and just getting the Royale.  Any 8-31 Sedan would not be a lot of money (as opposed to the bigger 8-35).

 

This one was for sale last year including enclosed trailer for 25k.

The bodies are identical 31-34 with minor changes in the radiator shell.    There are one or two unrestored coupes floating around but the price will probably double that of the sedan.  The last public coupe project sale was about 8 years ago fro 35k.
