Or am I wrong?

I believe you are correct. The sheet metal would indicate a probable early 1917. I see no sign of porthole windows. A short while back another picture was posted of what looked to be an early 1917 with no porthole windows. Were both vehicles early 1917s with no porthole windows or were both 1915s with newer sheetmetal? This picture shows the car with the turtle deck removed for a pick up bed. Would someone incur the cost of sheetmetal change for a working vehicle? Of course we don't know. It very interesting to see two pictures of what could possibly be early 1917s with no porthole windows, something believed to be not possible.

Upon a closer look, I think the rear deck is not a pickup bed. The background gave it a similar look. I believe the original deck is on the car.

This helps a little:

Is it possible that Ford used up all convertible tops with and without portholes prior to stopping convertible production? Seems like Henry wouldn't stop production if he had parts in inventory he could use to build cars.

Agreed, Henry was not one to leave parts behind. These bodies, however, were made by Fisher. I don't see Henry buying too many Bodies in advance of orders for the car.

Herb & Hal,

Would you please ask the people to step to the side so we can get a better view of the car.

Aftermarket radiator shell and no sidelights?

Seth, That's a very poor picture by today's standards. Resolution is about zero. Facial expression almost none etc. Fun to look at though.
