New Hamburg, ON, Canada, September 4, 2022 — Three extremely rare, turn-of-the-century motor vehicles – a 1907 REO Model A 5-passenger touring car, an 1899 Stanley Stanhope No. 1 “Locomobile” and a prototype of the 1911 Model H REO pickup truck – are the headliners in Miller & Miller Auctions’ online-only Petroliana & Advertising auction planned for Saturday, September 10th.

The 407-lot auction, beginning at 9 am Eastern time, will feature much more than just motor vehicles. Other categories include petroliana (gas station items), advertising signs, general store, steam, railroad, music machines and bicycles. “I’m excited about the variety in this sale,” said Justin Miller of Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. “It’s what makes our auctions so entertaining.”

Miller added, “Often we see buyers come to our auctions with the idea that they will purchase a certain type of collectible, but they end up with something else completely different that just happened to catch their eye. Without the variety that we strive to provide, buyers don’t have the opportunity to branch out into different areas of collecting. And this auction does have variety.”

With a pre-sale estimate of $40,000-$60,000, the 1907 REO Model A 5-passenger touring car is the sale’s expected top lot. This early and unusual vehicle was the brainchild of Ransom E. Olds (creator of the curved dash Oldsmobile). For years the car was on proud display at the Horseless Carriage Museum in Fenelon Falls, Ontario (likewise the following two). It was restored in 2006.
