Recently I got the opportunity to view a 1912 touring for sale. It was in the property of a family who had lost their parents years ago. They had to sell the car because the family was selling the deceased couple’s house, where the car was stored.
It is a very late 1912 touring. It still retains its original body, Rands unequal pane windshield, original 30 X 3 wheels on front with the correct hubs. The rear wheels are 30 X 3 1/2.
It has had a 1926 engine installed at some point. The rear axle is 1916 perhaps. The rest of the chassis appears to be correct for 1912, early frame, correct front axle and wishbone, correct brake lever and pedals.
The top is in shreds, but is all there. Upholstery has been replaced at some point but is actually good. There is a lot of wood work that has been improperly replaced.
