Having collected, restored and shown hit & miss engines, petroliana and the 1929 Reo automobile for over 40 years, we have decided to pursue other interests; therefore we have commissioned Art Smith Auctioneers to conduct a Live Public Auction at our home.

 We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to our Auction and thank you in advance for your time and consideration. Sam and Gloria Riblet

TERMS: Cash or good check day of Auction. MasterCard or VISA with 3% service fee. Sellers or Auctioneers are not responsible for accidents or items once sold.

INSPECTION: with registration available Friday, May 13th 2:00PM-6:00PM

NOTE: Most engines have been restored, painted, mounted on new hardwood skid or spoke steel wheel cart. The Reo is in very nice condition along with the gas station collectibles. This Auction is well worth you special attention. Make plans now to be just 10 miles north of Grand Rapids and attend this most interesting Live Public Auction!
