ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Identified by David Jahnke, June 2017. Among the identifying points as a 1915 are as follows:
Flat front fenders, but curved rear fenders. The curved round fenders are flat, not crowned, and that was only done in 1915 and 1916.
The brass radiator with electric headlight lights was on 1915 and 1916 only.
The headlight rims and the rims on the oil side lights are brass to match the radiator. This was only true in 1915 as the 1916 cars used black rims.
The 1914 Model T used a different style square side lights and flat rear fenders similar in profile to the front fenders. There are other details as well that make it a 1915.
