At least I think it is a 1915.
It's not Hap's cut off is it?

One of those pics is reversed. Probably the top one. Note the steering wheel, Ford on the radiator and crank holder. Also wondering what got the crank swinging in the second pic.

The second photo is reversed. Here is a detail of the "Ford" with a reversed one.



And a corrected photo:

Probably reversed. Also look at the front spring hanger bolts, and how the right one (passenger side) in the first photo is longer, and how the same bolt is longer on the left (driver side) in the second photo.

Bump could cause crank to swing.

Query: Why reverse the photos (including the Ford emblem, steering wheel, and crank strap) in the first place?

Strange.

Max,
Simple printing with the negative reversed will produce a photo that is reversed. It is a simple mistake.

Here's the second photo correctly oriented.

Herb,

Nice photos and my favorite year Ford. It would not be Blackie our cut off, as the one in the photo is a nice roadster and our cut off clearly started life as a touring. But lots of nice details in the photo.

Note the double wishbone and hand klaxon for safety.

Another clue that the second photo had been reversed: The speedometer set up always went on the right hand wheel. (The wheel fits fine on the other side -- so that could easily be changed during the life of a car, but the speedometer cable and works are still there.)

Again thanks for posting the photo and for those flipping it back as it really was.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off
