Truck Information:
Ransom Eli Olds founded the REO Motor Car Company in 1904 after leaving the Olds Motor Works Company (Oldsmobile) which he had also founded. When he left Oldsmobile, he was precluded from using his name (Olds) for another auto company, so he chose to use his initials (REO). By the fall of 1904, the new company began producing its first trucks. REO trucks were made from 1904 to 1967. Now you know where the band name came from… Top speed—35 MPH
