It was a two-seater, with the long hood and short tail (where a pair of spare tires were mounted) characteristic of the period, and weighing in at only 1800 lb (816 kg). It was priced at US$1500, compared to US$650 for the high-volume Oldsmobile Runabout and the 2-seat Ford Model C "Doctor's Car" at US$850, but below the US$1600 of the Oakland 40 and well below even American's lowest-price model, which was US$4250 (its highest was US$5250).
The Runabout's 477 in3 (7819 cc) (4.5×5-inch, 114×127 mm) six-cylinder produced 40 hp (30 kW), and Colt claimed the car would hit 60 mph (100 km/h), a considerable feat in 1907.
