Here is the Car You Should Buy Now
For the Following Reasons:
The New Regal "25" Underslung Touring Car
DFaVCTiM Ml TMRCD rtWC T - - J .L .L t t ... . , . V
REASON NUMBER ONE Tiy and match the value of
.- e a. .. . .
uus car u you can. Automobiles are bought today
by comparison and comparison is the strongest argu
ment we can present for your consideration of this new
Regal"25" Underslung Touring Car. By that, we mean
the quality of the materials put into the car, the suprem-
acy oi its design, tne excelling "market and own
ers" value of its price consideration and the factors of
horse power, size and proven ability.
REASON NUMBER TWO Comparison proves'its superior
value, now we'll emphasize its construction. We made
the first "Underslung" Touring Car that sold for less
than $4000. .We offer in this car the first Underslung
Touring Car to sell for less than $1000. To own an
"Underslung" at any price is to possess a "safer" car,
a more "comfortable" car, an "easier riding" car, a
more "economical" car, a more "accessible car, than
cars can possibly embody that are built the "ordinary"
way. To say nothing of the "advanced" engineering
. construction that "Underslung" means.
REASON NUMBER THREE Try and think of how many
V Touring Cars of established reputation you can buy for
less than $1000. Here is a "25" Horse Power Under
slung Touring Car not only under $1000, but offering
supreme advantages in beauty of design and con
structional merit. At the big Automobile Shows, deal-
ers and our manufacturing competitors frankly and
openly admitted that it was the "one" car exhibited
that could boldly claim "the most for the money" and
without question "the best for the money."
OTHER REASONS The motor of the Regal "25" Under
slung Touring Car has been used in ten thousand Regal
mission, that most important pari of a chassis, is of the
power and size usuallv found in 30 and 40 Hnru Pnurr
Touring Cars selling for so high as $2500. The Ton
neau is roomy and most comfortable, the wheel base
most liberal, the beauty of body line unsurpassed.
The car not only "looks" different but it different. A
car that keeps hundreds of dollars in the pocketbook
because it antedate all reasons why any man should
pay more. ,
MORE REASONS will be demonstrated to you after you
have seen this car, tested it on road with load, and
critically gone over every inch of it, than can possibly
be recounted here. It will capture your aopreciation
and prove to you conclusively that the new Regal "25"
"Underslung" Touring Car is a standard of value that
is unequalled It is the car you will buy now because
it is the car by every comparison you should buy now.
