Looks like a 12 to me
I think you are right.
I think it needs a top boot!
Check out the mud thrown up on the rear curtain.

Wish the pic showed the hood better..frankly it looks to be more like the later rounded type to me. Could just be shadowing. But its definitely not a '13!
Is that a palm tree growing out of that lady's hat ? Bet the fronds really wave in the wind when they're under way.
I think 12 also. Straight up windshield and the added on front door kit, but the rear doors are post '11.
I also wish it showed the hood, and more on the wheels, but it's great to see what it has.
I wonder if the building is constructed from local concrete block or a Sears Commercial Structure?
looks like the ladies are off to war with their helmets on.
I'm not so sure that's even a Model T.
It is a 1912 Model T. No door kit. ALL 1912s came from the factory with fore-doors.
It is not often you see the back of the front seat.
Also notice the area below the back seat (by the tail lamp) has NO pinstripe.
And there is NO stripe along the bottom of the body.
: ^ )
Marty you may be on to something there...the more I strain my eyes looking at that hood, the more it looks rounded to me, even on the top, which would not be any T in the brass era, unless someone changed it out down the road.
Well, it sure looks like a T rear suspension. It's also left hand drive, which was still unusual in 1912 except on Fords.
It could very well have been "Modernized" re the hood. There were many kits made to add a streamlined radiator shell and hood to older T's.
I've always wondered about with big, bushy mustaches and cigars (the guy in the right front seat). Isn't that a fire hazard ?
just a regular 'ol 1912 model T !
Is that an accessory brace going from beneath the body (below the door) to the front corner of the running board ?
On the matter if the mustache, I doubt it could actually get a full burn , it might singe it back a bit.
Sure looks like my late '12.
I thought that looked familiar this morning.
Great detail in the photo.
I like yours too Val.
Always good to see a photo of a '12 that still has doors. So many in our hobby have removed them. How sad.
Re the original photo posted by Herb Iffrig :
Looks like the same people are shown in Floyd Clymers Motor Scrapbook(Model T Ford edition), page 48. Interesting story on them.

With a good fireproof pommade that mustache would be no problem at all ;-)
