Knight & Son 621-25 KING STREET ' t V A Announcing a New Reo Model A bearing the i;ather than models have You are accustomed to look upon a motor car name REO as something substantially standard novel. In the long history of this company REO been to build, not something dif ferent, but something better. The splendid reputation of the REO product enjoys is largely the re sult of that policy. Insofar as the science has advanced and REO engineering has kept pace, we believe you will find this a better REO. You will find in this new model those features ardently desired by many REO distributors and a large percentage of the select REO clein tele. The motor is a SIX. Call it a "light six" if the term pleases you. We maintain, however, that beyond a certain point, lightness is incompatible with longevity a;4 LOW UP KEEP. Too many ears are light to the point of fli msiness. REO designed, the di mensions of'this new SIX guarantee that surplus power you have learned to expect in a REO. Clean-cut in design, rugged in construction, it possesses at the same time great flexibility and great "lugging" power. Outward ly it is entirely different?but close examination will disclose a pleasing rearrangement of those distinctly REO features with out which you would not expect to find that performance, that durability and economy that are REO attributes. Body design is new?ofNcourse. New bodies are not unusual. This new REO -SIX' will strike you as singularly beautiful and in excellent taste. A demonstration of this car will give you an idea of the only real surprise th'e'REO engineers have prepared for you in this new REO SIX.
