Classified as a light Tonneau four passenger automobile with side entrance. To design an acceptable side entrance Tonneau on a 80 inch wheelbase was a big accomplishment by The Regas Automobile Co. They did this by designing the body with either front seat tipping forward and allowing passengers large or small to enter the rear seat Tonneau. This was accomplished without unfastening any bolts, locks or catches of any kind. Hinges at the edge of the front seats allowing them to be tipped forward easily. Steel pins on the bottom entered recesses in the body floor.

Two gasoline engines of the four cycle type mounted crosswise in the Regas in front under the hood was easily accessible. The cylinder sets were V-shaped giving ample room for air to circulate. This unique air cooling feature was more effective than any other American engine. Projecting from each cylinder were 172 perforated coper tubles which served to reduce the heat generated in the cylinders.
