Nice looking lady. Nice looking car. Looks like an above the axle wishbone. Might be an X 17 on the license plate.
I like it.

P. S. It has the rubber seal between the windshield halves.

The body is a '19 - '23, so it's unusual for it to have an over-the-axle wishbone. Seems to me that was changed early in the '19 model year, so it must be an early '19 model car. I'm not able to make out the date on the license plate. The lady's hand is covering up one of the features which would help to date the car, which is the door handle. I think it's a bail handle, which would indicate a '19 or '20 model.

Gotta be at least a '19 with the demountable wheels.

After a second look, I'm not as sure about the wishbone. That hand looks more like it's on a Tee handle than a bail. These old photos look different every time I look at them.

I have found early cars with demountable wheels. People were not dumb they changed to demountables when the became available. I have found Ts that were changed to demountables as early as 1912. Anyway you are probably right on the wheels. That does look like a fairly early cowl and maybe the light lens. Its earlier than 24 that for sure.

No cowl lamps makes it at least a '19.

I just notice a rear mounted spare peaking out from the back of the car. Another 1919 feature.

I'll go along with Richard. It looks like a lower wishbone to me. Notice the oversize tires too.

1919 is the first year for that coupe body style. No coupe of that body style ever came equipped with cowl lamps or non demountable rims from Ford.
