From the look of it I would say the brake lever is brass plated, but photos can fool you sometimes.
I think those are goggles on his head.
It is a 1911 touring. Brake levers were brass plated in early 1911, you might be right.
Thanks Royce I thought that it was an 11 by the bulge in the splash apron. Is that an E&J generator on the running board?
He looks pretty pleased with his car.
Yes, it is an '11. .
The '09 and '10 have the horizontal bead the runs across the back door and flows to the bead along the bottom of the seats.
Yes, it is an E&J generator.
Not to drift too much, but...
Notice that the '11 has pinstriping on the upper part of the body only. There is none on the vertical part underneath the doors or the seat. No striping on the fenders either. On this photo it looks like there is a stripe in the triangle under the back seat. Also, on the hood there are no pinstripe "boxes." There is only one vertical stripe at the front and one at the back.
Thanks for sharing the picture, Herb!

It looks like it could be a wide-track.
Also has the bolted to the body rear mudguard typical of the 1911-12's. Dave C.
Looking at that photo prompts me to ask about the gas hose location. They seem to through the valance panel and the lower edge on some and other midway up the panel. Is there any procedure / reason as to where they go?? The hose in this one in the photo looks good with the nice curvature / flowing look

My '12 has its original splash aprons. The hole for the gas tube is exactly as pictured. Notice the location of the carbide generator just forward of the FORD script, aligning perfectly with the gas tube hole.
Thank you for taking the time & effort to photograph that and post it!
