1913 Buick model 31 perhaps. Only thing I see that doesn’t work is the passenger side horn, which could be correct but is not on pics of restored cars I can find.

I like this image and just for jollies I tweaked it with a photo-editing app.

Nice work!  

 

Any chance you could work that magic on the image in the thread below this one? Mid-teens touring.

I actually did tweak your posted photo in that thread and replaced it earlier. Sorry, not much I can do with that one, but will give it another shot... can certainly white-correct it.

I've done a bit more research in the newspapers in the local area of where the picture was posted and found out that the car was purchased secondhand in 1914 and was a model 16 Buick. Maybe that will help someone to firm up the model year for me.

 

Thanks,

As gossp said, it is a 1913  Model 31. 1912 had the windscreen at the front of the cowl and the earlier cars did not have front doors except the Model 39  in 1911,  but this was a much bigger car on a 116 inch wheelbase.   

 

It is not a 1914 as they had electric lights.
