That is a nice presentation of a great looking '11.
I hope it finds a good home.
Thanks

A car built in the last week of September, 1911 is a 1912 model year car, not a 1911.

Few things look as good as a wooden stepped body with an open front seat. -Near the top of my wish-list is a late 1911 or very early '12 Touring with the early body. They had the closed-valve engine and the late rear-end, but with all the brass, leather, diamond-tufted seating and pin-striping of the original model-year. -And that pair of long, brass windshield-braces tied the whole look together. -If only it had hood-louvers!

I don't know which source is correct, but as a matter of curiosity, MTFCA and MTFCI list the date range for "model" years differently. My copy of the MTFCI Judging guidelines state that the 1911 model year ended in December 1911.

Agreed Wayne, a little confusing, MTFCA encyclopedia lists it as model year to Dec 1911 but serial # at Sept 30 for a fiscal year.

Back to the original post of the thread, it looks like the quality of restoration is top notch. There are only a few things I would have done differently.

In regard to the tread drift... I generally call a car by its model year, not by Ford's fiscal year. The step-side touring cars with two-piece dash were made up through December 1911. I'd call any of those, 1911. The slab-side body cars with one piece dash started about January, 1912. I call a slab-side bodied car, 1912.

On open cars, Ford used the 1914 body well into January of 1915 before producing 1915s with the sloped cowl. I have never seen an open car that was produced Oct-Dec 1914 that is called, 1915.

I am biased of late 1911 touring cars, as mine is mid-November 1911 and the paperwork from the original owner has it titled as a 1911. However ALL cars after about 83,000 (early November) 1911 came from the factory with fore-doors. Furthermore, ALL slab-side 1912 cars came from the factory with fore-doors. Although they were called "detachable," they were not "optional."

I'll get off my soap box now...
