Not a speck of dust on that car! Wonder what it looked like a year or two later. Beautiful.

My understanding is the louvers were added for 1916 when they added the magneto horn. They needed the louvers to let the sound out.

Actually the louvers were added in 1914 to the 1915 model year cars because the bulb horn was under the hood.

The new torpedo runabout bodies were available from late 1914. The new ouring body style was not available until mid February 1915.


You can just see the horn under the hood of this 1915 runabout:

Did they have car wax back then? If not what did they use?

George Simons introduced "Simonize" carnuba wax and cleaner for auto finishes in 1910.
