Fairly new, a bit dirty, but still shiny! The white sided tires show well, inside and out. Car appears to be about 1918 (late '17 into early '19). Has the over axle wishbone with added braces, coupled with the unequal windshield hinges. I cannot tell for certain, but I think the felloes are rounded, indicating before 1919. That detail clearly had a long crossover time in production.
Great photo! Thanks Jay!
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

With the side horn button and forged truss rods, I would say 1919. Seems to be quite a few 1917 to 1919 cars with double wishbones. Look between the trunk and the rear of the splash shield. It looks like someone nailed a reinforcement block or something onto the side of the deck.

Cool pic Jay!
On another note, what color are those spokes? Naturals? Can't be. ;-)
With my T being what it is, I was noting the height of the rear fenders verses the fronts....
With a top boot none the less.
Like the man's hat.
Beautiful car.

I don't think the spokes are going au natural. It looks like the entire wheels are painted something other than black. Not red either, as the orthographic film of the period would make it look black.

I think the spokes are painted in mud and dust.

The splash aprons and the wheels appear to be the same color. I'm sure they are both black

The driver could very well be another woman. Not your typical mans hat

The wheel color is called dust and dirtů...

Looks like there is more than a nine leaf rear spring on that car.
