1910 Octo Auto by Reeves


Traversing Chicago streets, including those with ruts six inches deep, it brought "ease to the passenger and . . .length of life to the auto".
Its tires reportedly should last eight times as long as one might expect because eight wheels carried the load and eased the car in and out of road furrows caused by horse-drawn wagons. With 40-horsepower and a length exceeding 20 feet, this 4-passenger vehicle retailed for $3200.00. " quoted from: http://www.indianahistory.org/library/manuscripts/collection_guides/P0008.html
