After quarrels with his principal investor, Samuel Smith and a final blow-up with Fred Smith in mid-1904, Ransom Olds was forced out of the company that he founded and that bore his name. He was unable to use the Olds name on future automobiles. In August of 1904, he founded the R.E. Olds Motor Car Company, changing it to REO Motor Car Company, after the Smiths complained about the breach of their trademark.

That October, the first REO was completed and exhibited at the New York Show in January of 1905. Power was from a 16 horsepower, twin-cylinder engine and sold for $1,250. This was soon joined by a smaller single-cylinder model, with an engine half its size and priced at a reasonable $650. REO sales soon surged ahead of Oldsmobile's in 1906, reaching more than $4 million in 1907.

This particular example is a Model G Roadster. It was formerly part of the Pres Blake collection. It is finished in green with pinstriping, black upholstery, with black fenders and red wheels.
