Hey guys: I need to know if the touring body parts I have are the same year. Here are some pictures.
I'm beginning to wonder if maybe the year is in fact a 26/27 body. Any help is appreciated. And hey (blatant advertising here) if anyone's interested in the parts in either whole deal or certain pieces feel free to contact me via the email/phone stated in the ad.
Doors are wrong to be a '26-'27. 26-27 have doors on both sides in the front.
I'm going to guess a 23 or there abouts. It could be any year between 1919 and 23 since it has a low cowl and a starter switch hole in the front seat riser. As Richard mentions, the 26-27 Touring had a driver's door.
The back half looks to be 23-25 touring,from the body brackets in it.
From the photos it looks like you have parts from several different cars rather than a single car body had the wood eaten away by the termites but the metal was left. Please clarify if you think the body was originally one body or parts from several bodies.
Note the doors are the same 1915-1925 except for the type of door latch used and on late 1924 and into 1925 the door hinge was changed also.
The rear tub is a 1921-1925 style with the top bracket coming out of the side and 3 panels rather than the earlier 5 panel rear tub used 1915-1920 (ref page 317 Bruce's book -- the 1913-1914 were similar except the bead over the rear fender was straight at the back to follow the straight rear fender and it had more wood construction than the later rear tubs).
If you can show the back for the front seat as well as the arm rest area that should be helpful. As the 1915-1920ish used one style of tack rail and wider arm rest while the 1921ish to 1925 used a more narrow arm rest.

Thanks for the responses guys. I know that the back half and front half ARE from different cars. I am fairly certain that the front side panels are the same; not sure about the front seat metal. I have a video I took of the body. I plan on uploading it tomorrow. I'll link this to it when it's uploaded.
