Top Class Cars,
The Old Transport Yard
We are the proud owners of the only two genuine vintage 1929 Reo Flying Clouds of this year and model in the UK; and with only 86 left worldwide these beautiful cars really are a cut above the rest.
‘Woody’ is our REO Flying Cloud Mate. He has ash wooden spoke wheels with the spare wheel situated at the rear of the car, a brass windscreen surround and cream interior. These features attribute to the individuality of the cars.
The cars arrive fully adorned with wedding ribbons, interior decoration and cream umberella. We endeavour to colour co-ordinate the ribbons to match your chosen colour scheme giving a personal touch.
Both of the vehicles are Old English White in colour; a choice made as both white and ivory gowns will stand out beautifully against the cars.
These cars allow the bride to arrive in true luxury and style and contribute to great photograph opportunities. All our cars are chauffeur driven by courteous and helpful individuals who strive to ensure your day runs smoothly in a calm and professional manner.
For a brief history of the 1929 REO Flying Cloud, see below.
Ransom Eli Olds founded REO in 1904 and by 1917 was producing more cars then rival makers in the medium price range. After 1923, car production gradually fell and by 1929 only 11,00 units of all models were built. However, what they did build was of exceptional quality. The Flying Cloud was generally acknowledges as the finest car in its range.
We are proud to say that these two beautiful, genuine vintage wedding cars are the only two of their kind in the United Kingdom, and outside of the American continent, while only 86 Flying Clouds are known to survive worldwide.
Our REO ‘Woody’ was brought over from Twin Falls, Idaho, North West America in May 2006. She has been fully refurbished, with a body off restoration in 2007.
We strive to keep our cars in ‘top class’condition and pride ourselves in having such beautiful wedding cars!
