It has the ugly horn. Was there a reason for this horn being used on the torpedoes?



It has some modifications. The tool box on the running board is added.
Can anyone say if there ever was a tool box on the rear like on the 1912's? You see them on cars , but not in the ads from the period. Also electric lights have been used, where there had been carbide lights.

Also, the tool box on the running board is possible due to the deletion of the carbide generator on account of the electric lights.

Looks like he has a wood box behind the gas tank.

The Torpedo and Open Runabout had a much more narrow dash leaving small space from edge of dash to side of hood. Hood was longer by 2" than standard hood but was the same width and height so a horn with a smaller rim would make it easier to get the hood open. Many Torpedo and Open Runabouts were built and photographed equipped with the "standard triple twist horn" but the hood is very hard to get open. My 1911 Open Runabout has the standard horn and I can attest to the close quarters near that horn.

Tool box was not used on the rear deck in 1911 on the Torpedo and Open Runabout standard production. Many people did install one but it requires you to move the gas tank forward.
