I'm parting with my 1930 Flying Cloud. She's a Model 20 and since you are REO folks you already know the following:

  • 120" wheelbase
  • in-line 6
  • hydraulic brakes
  • she's a 5 passenger 4-door
  • steel spoke wheels (2 spares ride on running boards and into fenders)
  • trunk rack for carrying trunk

The car is very solid. She is a southern car and has no rust troubles other than very minor surface area here and there. The car is located in south Metro-Atlanta (Henry County). I acquired the car in a trade for one of my very nice racing bikes (race-built turbo Hayabusa). The car is at my old neighbors home (Frank). Frank knows a lot about the car. He re-worked the brakes, put on a new head gasket (the previous owner had removed the head to see the pistons -- go figure!) and that's why the new head gasket was needed. The paint appears to be original (has the lacquer cracks). The canvas/dope top appears to be original but is in very good shape. The wooden running boards need replaced. All-in-all she is a gem for restoring. However, with only a few small things completed she's ready for the road. Feel free to call me: (Jim) 607-638-5492. I'll put you in touch with Frank directly so you can chat with him. He's a great mechanic and can answer your questions and tell you all he's done to the car.

I wish that I had the money and time to keep the car and bring it up to my place here in Upstate, NY because I LOVE REO FCs. Unfortunately I am not a wealthy man and I have other projects that must be completed. Also, I love my motorcycles and I'm in the middle of a build that I want to finish before summer rolls around here in Upstate. So if you're looking for a good solid REO Flying Cloud this is your chance. I was hoping to get back what I have in her which is $13k.

FYI, it was won on an eBay auction. The winner is in California and the car is in Georgia and the winner decided to not go through with the transaction. Uggggg! So -- she's back on eBay again. Imagine that!
