What it is, I do not know. What it is not, is a Ford.

(Don't let the Model T steering wheel fool you.)

I’m guessing 1905 Covert runabout

I agree with Tim.

It's a Covert.

Here is a photo referenced as a 1904 Covert which appears to have been taken at the Henry Ford Museum (note the floor). They may have disposed of it during the "big purge" a while back. It does have different side lamps, the rear fender irons are gone but it does have similar upholstery. The steering wheel is installed correctly. Note there are no hubcaps while your photo shows hubcaps.

Possible that both photos are of the same car? Who knows?

Here's a Covert at the Dr Carl Benz Museum in Ladenburg, Germany. The firewall and fenders are a little bit different but it looks quite similar otherwise.
