  1. Well, if that ends up in my collection, I'll be keeping it original.
  2. What is most important to you considering this car? ”that I like the car”.....paint it whatever you like best, naysayers be damned. “the future resell value”.... search auction results and color schemes for trends that paint colors deliver. “historical purity for the make/model”..... reach out to the club it fits into (make/model), and get their input on what is original and appropriate. As an aside, are you experienced in having paintwork done to a car? Do you have a good idea of the cost to have a professional paint this valuable car? If not, get an education about paint costs......the color might not be so ugly after all.
  3. If it is as advertised, I would think this would find a new home. I believe this is the larger 120 inch WB with a 239 six cyl. This was a 2,000 dollar car when new. To me it fits into a nice niche category. I call it “near classic”...... I am not a knowledgeable REO guy, but hope this finds a home and if from the Forum... maybe the buyer will share more with us after the fact.
  4. 1924 REO for sale, not mine. https://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/cto/d/oswego-1924-reo/7355184540.html 1924 Reo in excellent condition. Proven quality automobile starts and drives well at almost 100 years old. Exterior paint and interior in excellent condition. $11500 OBO
  5. Now that is cool. The Delahaye of bikes.
  6. That’s an interesting color......... for a martini. I like these, but if I’m going to have one personal luxury cruiser from the 60s it would be a 63 to 65 Riviera.
  7. So many organizations with kids do fundraising projects. Church youth groups raising money for kids to go to camp, the eighth grade pom-pom squad, the band, scouting groups, I wonder if one of them could take this on as a fundraiser..... A bit odd and may be a longshot but just a thought.
  8. Let’s hope he’s “hooked” great way to start my day. Thanks for sharing
  9. I'm thinking a local scout master might take some young boys or girls and pick this up and box and ship it as a fundraiser.....It is easier than sitting outside of Ace hardware and selling 100 boxes of cookies in the rain.....
  10. It is a great chance to help a fellow old car lover, the task is easy, and you'll get to know Randy a little bit and he's a great guy. Ask me how I know?!?! John
  11. My first thought was that there is a guy out there with a 39-41 Cadillac, an early and late Fifties Cadillac who has always wanted an early car just for the experience. This looks like a possibility for someone that has the newer stuff to scratch that itch without writing a big check on the front end.
  12. That was my first thought too John. It looks like it could be a lot of fun around that price point.
