Jay and others - thank you all for posting so many great early photos.

Assuming the parts are original to the car (the front shocks are not) then the following is very likely. The black radiator, equal length windshield hinges, and possibly even a black steering gear case can be seen, all point to an Aug 1916 to Apr 1917 produced Ford.

Ref: http://www.mtfca.com/encyclo/doc17.htm
APR 19, 1917 Acc. 78, Ford Archives
Windshield hinge (with the unequal length arms) noted

But the single "Tombstone" back glass would indicate a very early 1917 and not one produced later in the model year. See additional comments on the "Tombstone" back glass on an early 1917 at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/506218/523673.html

Again thank you for posting the photos!

Respectfully submitted,

They brighten my days,too.
Is that maybe a Canadian or aftermarket horn button instead of a standard steering wheel but?
