Australia's Only REO Speed Wagon Wedding Car
The REO Speedwagon revolutionised trucks in the 1920s. Originally built by Ransom E Olds, the man who founded the Oldsmobile brand in the USA, REO made a highly regarded range of cars and trucks from the early 1900s to the late 1930s. REO trucks were much faster than other slower commercial vehicles, which led to the model being named a ‘Speed Wagon’.
The REO limo is the only six-wheel-equipped limousine (having spare tyres in the front fenders) available for hire in Perth, and we’re pretty sure Australia.
It has been re-painted to match our Rolls Royce Silver Wraith in the art deco colours of black over ivory.
Often associated with Rolls Royce Phantom limousines, our REO Speedwagon has also been retrofitted with a complete set of whitewall tyres to recreate the glamour and style of that period.
If you have your heart set on this limousine for your occasion, we recommend booking early, as the REO sells out most weekends.

After revolutionising commercial vehicles in the 1920 – 1930s, REO Speedwagon’s name comes from the fact they lifted the average speed of trucks to be similar to cars of that time. Only made for a short time in 1933-1934, our REO Speedwagon is an original long-wheel-base BN series.
The BN Series REO was a special combination model giving both the speed and comfort of a car, along with the size and strength of the REO trucks.
Making the Allure Limousines REO one of the rarest examples of Speedwagon, only a small number of BN series REOs were made as high-speed delivery vans and very few of these had the long-wheelbase chassis.
A long-wheelbase chassis and cross-over of truck and car technology of the time laid the base for our REO limousine.
I’m not sure how many Speed Wagons made their way to Australia, our REO may be the only one. It was fitted out as an eight-passenger country service vehicle in northern Victoria. The Allure Limousines REO Speed Wagon is a rare survivor of Australian and US motoring history.
