Year/model identification & parts

I recently purchased a suppossed 1930 REO Flying Cloud, no title, just the chassis number (CB1098). The car will need some work but it's worth to restore
so it's a great solid base with all the original parts, including the engine. The upholstery seems to have been redone in a kind of corduroy but the finish is not very good
I wonder which is the factory one. The engine was spray-painted in a medium red that I don't know if it's the own color. It seems that the body was repainted
in a combination of colors to resemble ie a Ford A but the factory one would be black. My aim is to restore the car the more original as possible so I'll need some information.

In principle, these would be the missing parts:

- Radiator emblem (not sure what's the right one)

- Bumper hinges and support

- Headlamp lens

- Hood ratchet

- Inside door handles

- Gasoline tank cap

Not many parts for this car in Spain, I only know two more units, one in the Canarias Islands, also a 1930, and the other in Valencia, a 1914 car. I have the Shop Manual but

a spare parts book would be very useful too. Thanks in advance
