Power is provided by a single-cylinder Tecumseh 5.0-horsepower engine mated to a Tecumseh four-speed transmission which sends power to the rear wheels. The engine features an electric start, as well as a manual pull start. Stopping is handled by disc brakes. The interior features a wood-rimmed steering wheel, an engine-turned dash with authentic Jaeger gauges, as well as controls for working lights.
The car rests on tubeless radial tires mounted on 10-inch wheels at all four corners.
