Nice pic Jay. Looks like a '14 with maybe "overlapping" '13 sidelights? I don't see the integral mounting bracket typical to '14 plus they have the jewel in the back, that I don't think the majority of '14s had. Henry's "don't waste a thing" plan. I remember an old H.S. buddy who worked at Ford in Lorain bemoaning to me of dumpsters FULL of "obsolete" AM/FM radios from model year change over going to the landfill. I bet Henry was spinning in his grave over that one!!

The integral sidelamp brackets didn't appear until about May/June of '14, I believe.

I could be wrong, but I think only Browns had the jewel. The headlamps aren't Browns; a bit of additional evidence that the headlamp brand wasn't always the same as the side and tail lamps.

Hard to tell with certainty, but it looks like it has the aluminum crank handle, so that would make it a February or earlier car.

How bout late 13. E @ J sidelamps also had the jewel.

I have a pair of Victor number 2s that have the jewel.

Looks like some striping on the wheels. Note the correct style top cover.

Appears to be an "early" 1914 style touring built between July and December 1913. It also has a speedometer, 1913 fenders, striped wheels, etc. It does have the '14 style windshield although some had the '13 style. Basically a 1913 with a 1914 style body built in calendar year 1913.
