Did all 1914 Touring cars used the same "Body-to-firewall" metal bracket as seen here on my 1913 touring? (I'm not talking about the windshield bracket, but the metal the sticks out behind the inner door panel) I'm trying to figure out if any of the 1914 Tourings ever come WITHOUT the metal bracket, and just have the body panel simply arch around in a sharper radius to intersect with the wood firewall, and have the bolts go right the the body to attach the firewall? bracket

Have seen other styles which have a reinforcing web in them. Not just flat bar, but a more fancy looking bracket. Possibly more of a 1913 thing then simplified for 1914? Anyway, James, all cars would of had some sort of upper body fixing between the dash and body.

There were multiple body suppliers in 1913 - 1914. Each of the body suppliers had a somewhat different bracket for attachment of the firewall to the body. The holes were in exactly the same places. The brackets from some of the body makers was a folded steel piece that looked like this:



Other body suppliers used a simpler flat metal bracket, made from a thicker gage of steel like this:
