1911 Regal Underslung 25
This is a General interest post for auto aficionados sharing a pictorial history over the decades.
I hope you enjoy the educational - historical information!......
This was seen at the Hershey Fall Meet 2014 Being listed as the name above.
The Regal Car Company opened for business in Detroit in 1907. The company hired Paul Arthur to design a car, which was going to be bodied by the Fisher Coachworks.
The company introduced their underslung model in 1911. It was priced at $900 for a runabout or $1,250 for the colonial coupe. Since the bodies were interchangeable, you could buy one chassis with both bodies for $1,400. Because of the sporty presentation allowed by the underslung design and the capabilities the Regal possessed, it was often touted as the 'Poor Man's Mercer.' This was quite the compliment, considering the Mercer sold at twice the price of the Regal.

The company went into receivership in 1918 after having its biggest production years in 1915, producing 8,227 cars. The story for which Regal may be best known forever is the great recall of 1907. After discovering issues with the 1907 cars, the manufacturer recalled the entire lot of 50 cars and replaced them with new 1908 models.
The Regal Automobile Company of Detroit, Michigan produced automobiles from 1907 through 1918. The company was formed by the Charles R., J.E., and Bert Lambert along with Fred W. Haines. Paul Arthur was hired to design their car. Their vehicles were a medium priced car which received good publicity when their Regal 'Plugger' successfully traveled from New York to San Francisco in the summer of 1909. It would cross the country five more times before returning to Detroit in the summer of 1910.
Power was from the company's four-cylinder engine. In 1915 a V8 was introduced along with a lighter four-cylinder option, both of which were designed by S.G. Jenks and supplied by the Port Huron Construction Company.
In 1918, the company entered receivership. Part of their downfall was the shortage of materials due to World War I. The company and its assets were purchased in the summer of 1918 by Maurice Rothschild. The factory remained open, making spare parts servicing vehicles, for a period of time.
The Regal Automobile Company also exported vehicles to Britain as the Seabrook-RMC.

 1957 DESOTO ADVENTURER COUPE

Under the guidance of their visionary chief designer Virgil Exner, Chrysler Corporation finally broke free of their staid and conservative design language of the late 1940s and early 1950s with the influential new “Forward Look” of 1955. Chrysler began hinting at its reborn sense of style through a series of dream cars that were the product of a collaboration between Exner and Ghia’s Luigi “Gigi” Segre. The Forward Look thrust Chrysler back into the spotlight and ushered in the era of chrome, fins, and flamboyant style.

This DeSoto Adventurer is one of only 1650 coupes built for the 1957 model year. This lovely example wears an older restoration that has seen many years of regular care and maintenance in the hands of a seasoned collector. According to the trim tag, this car is a genuine Adventurer Sportsman Coupe, correctly finished in original Surf White with Adventurer Gold roof and lower body sweep.

Comprehensively restored a few years after being found. It presents in very good condition, with straight panels and factory-appropriate gaps. Chrome trim and brightwork are also in good condition, with very good bumpers and moldings showing some light polish marks from regular care. This car retains the original gold-anodized wheel covers, unique to the Adventurer. Because of their delicate nature, most get painted during restoration, so it is rare to find a set with the anodized plating intact.

Interior features factory-correct upholstery, which is specific to the Adventurer and corresponds with the trim tag. The fawn-gold seats have white accents and distinct tweed-style fabric inserts. Door panels match the chairs and feature patterned-alloy inserts that repeat on the instrument fascia. The carpets, dash top, and other interior panels are all in fine condition. Period correct “Flookerang” logo floor mats (the official symbol of The New Look) protect the carpets. The top-line Adventurer came equipped with a radio, push button transmission control, and deluxe heater, and this car adds the optional power-adjustable front seat.
