Or maybe the negative was reversed when the image was printed?

I hope I can make Popeye's new top look that good!

Ken -- good catch on the coat buttons!

I believe it is most likely a 1924 USA touring.

Note it appears to be a starter equipped but non-demountable clincher touring.

One man style top bows would make it 1923 or later for USA production.

Based on the cowl compared to a low cowl 1915-1923 and a high cowl 1924-25 -- I believe it is a high cowl car. (see the photos of both for comparison at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/257047/309158.html?1346535627 Note someone who is more familiar with the high cowl cars maybe able to confirm or correct what I think I see.)

And if it is a high cowl, then because the front door opens level rather than slanting down when open, that would indicate it is a 1924 rather than a 1925.

As always a higher or better resolution photo would make it easier to tell. In a higher resolution photo we might be able to see the notch in the 1924-25 hood shelf near the back hood latch.

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Isn't it interesting how many of those old pictures are reversed. Old habits from the old tintype pictures? Dave

Looks like a young Peyton Manning on his way to try outs.
