22.5 HP, 199 cid, L-Head In-Line 4-Cylinder Engine, 3-Speed Transmission, Shaft Drive Engine No. 7048 Long before Buick ever used this name, Regal was a respected member of the automotive scene. Endurance in the early days of motoring was extremely important and the little Regal, founded in 1908, had proven itself in 1909 when a model nicknamed the Regal "Plugger", was driven from New York to San Francisco and then across the country several more times for a total of 22,000 miles, quite a fete in the days before Interstates and paved highways. This little roadster appears to be mostly original and is built for the open road. With is low-slung chassis and body, you ride closer to the ground than most cars of its day. It appears to have had a spare tire mounted on the rear deck at one point. With its open-air seating, this is a chance for you to put on your helmet and goggles and enjoy some real motoring excitement. Finished in black with blue pinstripes and matching wood spoke wheels the uncomplicated mechanics of the day should be relatively easy to bring it up to running order.
