Check out this cut-down 1914 Touring with the accessory cowl and windshield.
Very cool --- almost makes it worth it to buy the car just to get the windshield.
Car is in southwestern Minnesota, for any of you in the neighborhood. More photos at:
Nice! I don't know how truly correct or real it is? But there are a lot of correct or nearly correct '14 parts on that car. It looks like mostly original upholstery also (not the bottom cushion). The only major thing I see not correct is the rear end. The steering wheel is minor, and the radiator is an after-market one that may or may not be brass. All in all, a nice looking T cut-down pickup at a decent price, and it looks to be HCCA acceptable (just don't look at the rear end, I can't tell what year it is from the photos, but it is not '14, although some very late '15 built '14s may have had the '15 rear end, but I cannot see the backing plates well enough to see if that is what it has. Probably a later '10s rear end).
I like that cowl and windshield! I have seen several era photos of those. I think they are great! Someone needs to get that thing and enjoy it!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Those cowl / windshields were very popular additions to any 1913 / 14 touring. Quite a few around even today.
The car in the creek is a 1912.
- location of rear door hinges
- sill between the body and splash apron
- top extends far beyond accessory windshield
Erik - correct - Ed's advertisement shows they made two different widths to accommodate the wider early bodies. I think the ad is a little confused because the 1913 - 14 bodies are the same width.
