Why is this a late 1912? This car has the earlier outside rear door handles. Wouldn't that make this car be no later than May 1912 build?

I understood that the earlier 12 models had the step side like the 1911 bodies. The later ones had the plain sides like his one. Hence this one is a late [r] 1912.

I could be way off track!!!

1913 Model year began in September 1912. May is rather late in the model year. The car could be as early as January 1912 I think.

A rough, simple progression (without details like dipped front doors, then straight front doors etc.) is the stepped body, smooth body with external rear door handles & then the later smooth body with internal rear door handles.

My touring looks like this one and is a late 1912.

Another one where I get confused because here is Australia we use a calendar year and not the US model version. To me May us in the first half of the year before December!!!

Well, okay mid-1912.

After the very early step-side bodies, but before the inside only door latches.

The "upside down" horn on this car is late. Assuming of course , its not a replacement horn...

My touring does not have the brass handles and is 141607,which is either july or august.

My 12 is a late one and it is identical except for the outside door handles. My car has the handles on the inside. There were quite a few variations over the 1912 model year.
