He found the need to install a better horn and acetylene supply. The house numbers on the radiator look out of place for 1914 or later. What state would have done that?
It looks like the paint might be presentable beneath the dirt.
It's a nice look at that era.

Thanks Steve. I was about to add it to my website. Unfortunately I hadn't realized that the front plate in the photo wasn't an actual leather plate, but instead appears to be only numbers mounted on the radiator. Tell me about your '14 in the photo you've attached. What plate do you have mounted on the front, it looks like a 1914 Wisconsin...?

Yes - being our great State didn't supply plates back in '14, I found this plate and mounted it up just because of the date. I have personalized plates:

Has a short Prest-O-Lite "E" tank on the running board. Early 1914 style touring probably built in Fall of 1913.

Or you could go a different route:

See this example for Colorado
Scan through the Customer Gallery for custom, new WN (Washington) examples and other states in the teens and earlier.
