My 1912 Mother-In-Law Roadster has never had a top. I want to put one on it. After seeing another 1912 roadster, it appears my seat is not from a 1912 T. It may be an older year T, or even an N,R,S vintage seat? The front sockets have a 9/16" square hole instead of a round hole. Across the width of the seat they measure only 41 and 9/16" center to center. The sockets are 6 and 3/4" back from the front edge of the seat. Another mystery is that rather than the trunk door dropping down to the floor, the entire mother in law seat goes up on a piano hinge at the top front of the seat. Any clues as to what seat this is? seat photosseat photostop viewback viewin law rearsocket

Does this seat look familiar to anyone? Definitely not correct for a 1912.
