Looks like it was a 1913.
"1700 miles without puncture or break"
Ain't that something!
But I wonder whether the back doors came unlatched in those 1700 miles.
Maybe the body flex was reduced with the extra brackets supplied by Ford - and especially with the top up all the time?
The later 1913 cars did not need the brackets ref: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/doc13.htm
MAR 4, 1913 Letter, Ford to the Cincinnati branch
"....All bodies coming through from now on will be fitted with heavier sills so that attachment of extra brackets will be unnecessary."
Also the touring bodies built by Beaudett (also spelled Beaduett) were stronger and did not need the extra brackets. Ref: same page:
JUL 14, 1913 Acc. 575, Letter 434, Ford Archives
Noted that 1913 Touring bodies were made by Herbert, Fisher, Wilson, and Beaudett. Apparently the Beaudett bodies differed in construction from the others. Beaudett bodies with a filler block on the rear door hinge posts apparently did not need the steel reinforcing pieces.
