While doing the research of pinstripe for my late 1911 touring car, it is evident that the striping is only on the doors and the areas above the seat riser. There is no stripe on the vertical flat part under the doors, as illustrated here:
We know there is a stripe that goes all the way around the back of the front, and the back seat, but what about the "box" under that back seat? It would make sense that since there is no stripe under the seat riser, there would be no stripe under the seat riser on the back. However, I have never seen an original photo of the back of a 1911 Model T that clearly shows a stripe or the lack there of.
You can see a reflection from the corner trim, but there is NO stripe. The stripe on the back of the seat is clearly visible. and the reflection from the bead looks like the reflection of the corner trim.
Here is the original site:
I would love to see other clear original photos of 1911-1912 cars from the back that show a stripe, or lack of stripe on the box under the back of the back seat.

Great photos! I may never have a 1911, even though it is probably my favorite year for Ts. I see a Torpedo runabout in the garage photo. I would also like to know what that touring is to the right of the torpedo?
Thank you for sharing these photos, and the information about pinstripe.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
If anyone put a top on my T that looked like the one in the photo, I'd refuse to pay for the project! Great photos Keith.
