1914, or possibly very late '13. I can see the bottom of the driver's fake door, and the windshield is folded back (unlike the the '13).

I should also remind that the 1914 style/model car was manufactured up into April of 1915 calendar year. So, "technically" it could actually be an early '15. I tried zooming in to the side lamps, but the detail wasn't clear enough. And I am not really any sort of expert on side lamps anyway. They do have less brass than some of the "black and brass" lamps, which could indicate one of the later variations. I cannot see anything to indicate which type mounting bracket the lamps have.

9 people in a Model T? I'll bet, as those kids got older, Daddy discovered why God invented depot hacks!

Usually, the late '14 front fenders have the '15 lip. This one doesn't appear to have them. Also, Ford was installing the new Ford special speedometers in late '14.
