In family at least since 1950's and probably much earlier. Been garaged. Runs and is titled as a 1915. Some say it may be a 1916. Motor appears to be 1926 (#13724109). Not restored. Seeking advice on how to price it and how to sell it. All proceeds go to our daughter's adoption fund. She is adopting a special needs baby girl from Thailand. Would appreciate any sound advice so we can help our daughter by getting a reasonable price.
We also have wood bows and hardware for the top
Kelly, Beautiful car that I hope finds a good home. Here is Steve Jelf's guide:
Yes, the black headlight rims and black trim on the side lights and tail light are 1916 features. If a magnet will stick to the hood, it's 1916 too (1915 hoods are aluminum). My guess is that it's titled as a 1915 because it was made early in the 1916 model year (after August 1, 1915) before January 1, 1916.
As for selling, there may be something here that helps:

There are a few things you should know that are incorrect that will affect the value of the car.
It seems to have a non-1916 engine. To a purist that will have to be changed. I think that in 1916 there should be tapered leaf springs on the car.
It seems to be a very nice car though and I would not kick it out of my garage for leaking oil.
