Looks like a latter half '12 model, with electric headlamps. I don't know about the man? But the car is interesting!
Thanks again Jay! W2

Looks more like a 1914 tourer with an earlier windscreen fitted to me. The headlights sure are different.

Allan from down under.

Allan, '14 didn't use the brass windshield rods. They attached at the windshield hinge down to the body with a bit of a bend in the arm.

Windshield aside, the body of a "slab side" 1912 may look like a 1914 to the casual observer, but the 1912 body has an exposed wooden sill below the body sheet metal and above the splash shields and frame. Also, the rear door hinges of a 1912 slab side are at the front of the door, not the rear of the door like a 1914.

For 1914, the sheet metal covers the wooden sill and goes right down to the splash shields/frame.

In the photo below, I have circled the wooden sill which appears as a black band above the splash shield.

Thanks Erik for calling the splash shield the correct name! BTW, some of the real late 1912's even used a '13 windshield.
