Did all Royales use the same engine size. Did Reo offer an 8 in any of the lesser lines? How did the wheelbase's evolve?

Post some pictures and I'll tell you what the car is.   I believe they had a smaller eight but I'm not sure.  Wheelbases were all over the place 124 to 152.

Do most of the Royale series cars have a typical low speed rear end gear ratio? What can be said of the new auto shift transmission technology?

Al

Depends on the chassis length and body.  The Convertible Coupes had a higher speed ratios than the sedans.   I know nothing about the automatic transmission cars.    Supposedly a Royale was good for 90mph.   I wouldn't know as I have driven my car a total of 1/4 of mile in 10 years.
