Milton Othello Reeves founded the Reeves Sexto-Octo Company In 1911. He modified a 1910 model Overland by adding four extra wheels and calling it the Reeves Octo-Auto which Time Magazine called "one of the ugliest ever produced". It had a 40-horsepower engine, was over 20 feet long and has an MSRP of $3,200.

The Octo-Auto failed to sell and in 1912 Reeves created the Sexto-Auto, a six-wheel version built on a modified Stutz Motor Company chassis with a price of $4,500.
