I suppose these were an accessory.
Notice the three tier sidelights. What brand are they?
Very interesting. I think that you are right. At first glance it looks like a 1911 torpedo, but the doors and lower portion of the body are not quite correct for the torpedo. It does (at least to me) look like the open roadster with added doors. The open roadster had the same curved fenders, shorter running boards, and similar windshield with braces as the torpedo roadster. The firewall was moved back about two inches with a longer hood and slightly modified transmission pedals, lower seat with the larger gasoline tank behind the seat all as well. Both of those body styles are tops among my favorite Ford factory offered cars. I don't recall ever seeing one quite like this before, however.
Thank you Herb!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
Gas tank has been moved forward and a tool box added.
Here is a close up of an open runabout for comparison:
And the car that Roger used to have:
(Note the slight radius where the sill meets the seat riser.)
Although I have seen aftermarket doors for the regular 1911 roadster, I have never seen aftermarket doors for an open runabout. Thanks for sharing.

Perhaps they are wooden doors made by the owner of the car. In the lower left hand window pane in the house is that someone peeking out?
E&J Herb, you need a set?
