This has been posted and discussed several times over the years, recently by Tom Rootlieb in the General Discussion.
I wish I could remember what the final conclusions were. I seem to recall that Henry was visiting some friends and the family farm?
It does appear to be a slab-side 1912. However, I do not recall seeing many removable front doors with outside door handles on them, which this car has. And most of the removable front doors i have seen with outside handles, were earlier after-market door kits for earlier bodies. Early step-side style '12 T touring cars had outside handles on the rear doors, similar to the '09/'10/'11 touring cars did. However, that was discontinued fairly early in the year model. We cannot see the back of the rear door, so cannot tell for certain what it has. wonder if this could have been a custom detail for Henry's use?
