It might be a high mileage car at 76,540 miles .
It looks like the fenders have been shook off and replaced!

Odd placement for running board braces; seems like the one in stock factory position could have just as easily been used to support the home-made fender,.......strange! Maybe the intention was to also install running board(s) but just hasn't gotten around to it yet.

The more ya' look the more ya' see! Looks like a home-made tool box under his knees. Not a bad idea!

looks to me that the front running board brace is in the correct position and the rear one added to support the rear fender. I appears to be a 1912/13 car and as the photo was taken in 1918, 6,000+ miles per year over those roads was a lot of work.

I think it is a 1910-11. One piece spindles. Head lights have flat bonnets. High necked radiator would make it an early 1911. Radiator could have been replaced.

Crank handle is missing the cover, 1910 handle covers were made of a bakelite type material that would crack and fall off. The 1911 handles were aluminum.

1911 handles were bakelite too. The aluminum handle came around late December 1911 - well into the 1912 model year.
