Wow.

There are so many interesting things about this photo...Let's see what all gets noticed.

It's like the Norman Rockwell April Fool's day edition.

I'll start by pointing out the backwards windshield.

The windshield panes are not backwards. The top pane overlaps forward of the bottom pane like it should.

However, the hinges are either upside down or on the opposite sides where they should be.

I suppose it was common back in those days to tuck the tie inside the shirt like that, especially if you were working around machinery (you always wore a tie, of course :-) )

Wasn't that horn button discontinued in 1917? The windshield brackets would indicate a car with a starter. 1919 or later. The steering wheel could be a larger diameter hence the reversed windshield brackets to allow folding forward. At any rate this fellow should be reprimanded for his strange choices. They are certainly not up to Forum Standards. #;0(

Looks like there's a spacer under the turtle deck to make it deeper.

It's really hard to tell, but are the windshield brackets homemade (maybe to eliminate the sidelamps?). I was trying to see if the wheels are demountable but cannot tell. I suspect that it is a 17 with some work done to the windshield, steering column support, and other mods as mentioned. These photos are great!

The driver dose not have a legal drivers license.

I blew it up and recontrasted it, the dad has a Camel Butt in his hand, no rim bolts are to be seen, and the kid is missing a lower tooth....

P.S. looks like a web belt and early football-type pants on the kid.

A '17 for sure.
