Looks like it has a buggy rail too.

Looks like a '10 Tourabout.

I guess that you are right, since the buggy rail is on the front seat.

I was under the impression that tourabouts had straight legged sockets.

It looks like the man on the left is leaning on an open door meaning it is a touring, not a tourabout. The buggy rail may be an optical illusion and it may be on the back seat. Interesting that the radiator has the later script, but appears to have the early, low filler neck. Also interesting that the door appears to have a pocket in it.

Here is a 1909 (?) with the back door open showing the pocket flap.



Notice the brass plated hand brake and crank, two bolt front body mount and small hubs

I have no connection with the auction:

Keith. The T looks more like a 1910 model year T. The lights are John Brown which were widely used for 1910 models. Most of the 1909 model years Ts used E&Js. The 1910 model year started in Oct. of 1909.

I thought it was an '09 because of the roll up windshield.

It appears the man is leaning on the front top iron support. But how can he behind the open rear door and comfortably leaning on the front top iron support?

Maybe he is leaning on an aftermarket front door?

Tops came with roll up windows well into the 1910 model year. Here's a similar car with a different brand of top. There were several makers of bodies and tops. Most tops came with front curtains because the makers sold them with full accoutremants of side curtains and front curtain so they could be used on 1909 models. See the roll up front window?
