Well it is an interesting photo. It is a little dark toward the rear of the car to see what is goin on, but I think they are hauling something on the rear of the car. Could someone do something with that?
The car might have been around for a while when he picture was taken. The brass side lights look tarnished to me.
Did they make a widetrack in this model? The fenders look wider too.
It has had a lot done to it since 1911 Torpedoes had 2 piece dash with spacer board below the windshield. This thing has what appears to be either a 1912 dash or a home made dash.
Best I could do with the photo . . .
Ma Barker staring at me made me nervous <@^@>
(Whats taking those boys so long? - I told them to just dig it shallow!)
Thanks Art for the clearer shot of the car.
John in the second photo I think I can see the center dash clip above the hood that helps hold the dash spacer below the windshield. So maybe the dash has not been modified?
Also it now looks like there is a top boot in place, and a pennant on the side of the windshield.
What do we know about widetracks on these?
I take it back. It looks like there IS a spacer board but the car is an open runabout rather than a torpedo since there are no doors. I think the brass edge molding on the lower main dash is perhaps not there since I don't see the normally visible outline of the lower dash. Not sure about the wide track. The right front wheel looks like the top of the tire is very hear the outer edge of the fender but it also appears that the car may be sitting with the right front wheel perhaps dropped down off the edge of the road with the left front wheel up on the road surface. I have never researched the wide track option and which cars it was used on.
I think that it IS a torpedo. It appears to me that the door is open and is casting a shadow onto the splash apron. Well, that is what my poor eyes see......
Cheeze I need to get new glasses. I am wrong again and you are correct - it is a Torpedo door that you see and that I didn't see. It's hell getting old.
