It is RHD, maybe it was shot in Canada?

The trees look to me like eucalyptus trees. That would suggest Australia.

T's in New Zeeland got nickeled radiator shells and headlamp rims earlier than the rest of the world - maybe it's from there?

The plate is English in style but it would have had 2 letters then, also the architecture is colonial, so Oz or NZ.

I should have added that the photo was taken in NZ.

Jay,

Maybe you should make a contest out of some of the photos you post. Where, when, why, etc. would all be fun to try to figure out. In this post we got pretty close with Roger hitting it on the head.

Anyhow, something to keep us old guys occupied.......

Are those "suicide doors"? Sharp looking car, I agree with David, bet it was a wedding present.

I think maybe it's a 1918 pillarless coupe/coupelet? There are 3 hinges on the lower part of the door and none above.

Cowl lamps and door hinges suggest late '17 or'18. Being of Canadian origin (for NZ and OZ), it could be 1919. Definitely a removable pillar coupe. I love it with the nickel on it!
Thanks all!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

The one thing that stands out are the side lights
are reversed. It appears to be an early 1918
coupelet.

The picture has been on the Forum before. Very nice car!!
That stile of house is typical of our early 20th century Queensland Houses. The number plate might give a clue.

Best regards, John Page, Australia
