Looks like it has been rode hard and put away wet. 1914 touring cut-off into a pickup with a seat added to be a touring again.
Thanks again Jay!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

From:

http://www.retroplanet.com/blog/retro-memories/remember-when/coca-cola-bottle-shapes/attachment/coca_cola_bottles/ they have a few photos of coke bottles.



The dark one with the diamond shaped label would be my guess for what the women and the man are holding.

The car appears to have the fold back window of the 1914 style and since we cannot see a door handle protruding far above the top of the door, we know it is not a late 1913 with the 1914 style windshield. The top iron on the front seat shows that it was once a touring. The dark coke bottles began to be replaced by the more traditional style at the end of 1915. Iím not sure how long the overlap was when both styles of Coke bottles were used. I know when I was a kid the new bottles and old bottles continued side by side for years.

Lots of touring served later as light pickup trucks. And several of those went back to hauling passengers. If you look at Blackie on my profile you see where the touring was a cut off and someone installed a wooden back seat.

As always, a higher resolution photo might allow us to determine the date on the license plate. A license tag date does not necessarily date the photo, but does mean it was taken around that time frame unless the owner didnít update the license plate.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

I think the woman in the front seat is the mother-in-law, and the woman in the back is the wife. The mother-in-law is boss.
