Interesting touring. Electric headlamps and no evidence of cowl lamp brackets. No '14 style windshield brackets but a much earlier brass windshield rod(s). They must've push started it because the crank is removed. Yeah, very interesting touring. I don't know how you keep doing it Jay but keep 'em coming. Thank you

Late 1912 with aftermarket demountables, shock absorbers, and electric lights.

What happened to the horn? I agree, it's a late '12.

Larry,

It seems to have a louvered hood so maybe it is under the hood (horn).

Do you think most of these "electric headlight" cars are running them off the magneto? These are fork mounted lamps and obviously larger than the Ford acetylenes.

The shock setup may require that a crank handle be used to engage the "stub". Just a guess on my part. The headlights are sticking out forward of the radiator and have a greater diameter as well.

Ken in Texas
