Early, middle, or late '12? Early '12s are step sided, late and middle '12s are often referred to as "slab sided". They are quite different.

Andrew-
99.9% of all 1912 touring cars had fore-doors. I only know of one exception... If you want open front, you want 1911 or earlier. What is the serial number of your upside-down chassis?

You can order an entire reproduction body here:

Ray does nice work. He has a 1912 commercial roadster in stock.

You can always take the fore-doors off and have an open front. I have had mine on and off from time to time. My '12 is a late slab side without external rear door handles. I have the doors on now because my wife likes the way it looks with them on. I prefer the look with the front doors removed but anyone who is or ever has been married knows how that works out!

One thing for sure. A touring is not a tub. Lets get it right!

Larry - Kinda' wondered about that "choice of words" myself. Sorta' smacks of "hot rod", no?

In the hot rod world a touring is a tub.

Sounds to me like Andrew wants to destroy an early body to make a hot rod

Judging by the profile picture of a nice early brass chassis with no body, I'd say it's NOT destined to be a hotrod.

I frequently call a Touring body a tub also. I'm not a hotrodder, but I have friends who are, and occasionally buy up their left-overs to use on my projects.

I'm sorry I missed understood Andrew.
In Ireland, it might be called a tub.
I also buy leftover parts from hot rodders

You can buy a new reproduction 1912 touring body from Ray Wells. His contact info is on the vendor page of this web site.
