Sports saloon, 4-passenger Victoria.

Aerodynamic styling comes in with a whimper, the '31 Reo concessions being a vee-grille, bonnet shutters instead of louvres, and a smoother roof/screen line. Straight eight engine has nine bearings and coil ignition, hydraulics are standard and it came on a 135ins frame. '32's 835 model is recognized as a true classic in the US, and this year saw the introduction of a vacuum controlled clutch. '33 models were facelifted, so in came skirted fenders, a down curved front bumper, automatic chokes, freewheels, synchromesh, and though it lacks the elegance of '32 models, it's still an attractive and desirable machine.
