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.
Betty is our REO Flying Cloud Master, which has two spare wheels situated on either side of the car and a trunk at the rear with a mink interior.
The cars arrive fully adorned with wedding ribbons, interior decoration and cream umbrella. 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. When booking a Reo you can specify which Reo you would prefer, ‘Woody’ or ‘Betty’ and we strive to give you your first choice however it is not guaranteed.
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 first REO ‘Betty’ came from Morgantown, West Virginia in 1988. This car received a professional body off restoration in 1974 and has had a full body respray ready for the 2012 wedding season.
We strive to keep our cars in ‘top class’condition and pride ourselves in having such beautiful wedding cars!
