Looks like a '13 with the bead on the turtle.

That brings up a newbie question, what keeps the gas headlights aimed? Just friction on the mounting pivots?

Now what we have here is an example of a early 1913 "short bill" front fender. This is one of the best pictures I have seen of the early billed fenders for 1913.

Jeweled side lights and he has the headlight door hinges on the fender side rather than the radiator side.

Gary,
that is an interesting observation. Undoubtedly intentional bending of the headlight forks. It is probably a quicker method of adjusting the beam on the gas light and only requires an "adjustment" with the adjustable wrench in the tool kit.

I have been adjusting the beam by raising or lowering the burner stand in the headlight. Learn something new every day.

I plead ignorance in advance so someone help me. I thought the turtle was the removable body section behind the passenger compartment; if not, what is it?

Mark...the headlights have a bolt that tightens against the headlamp bucket as it sits on the forks. Basically a clamp setup.

John M. -- What you thought was the turtle IS the turtle. :-)

The headlight focus also depends on the position of the reflectors. Mine are focused but the lamps look slightly high/low like that.

Great photo Jay. Keep 'em coming. I wonder if that may be my car?
