So is it true that all 1913's came with a speedometer? The gas headlights will be operational soon. I ...

James, thank you for that link showing all the vehicles in the entire series. It answers a lot of questions for me. It's interesting that some of the photos titled "unidentified vehicle" are obviously brass era T's
