Beautiful Buick needs year identification

From reader Deanna Coffey:


Could someone help me with the year of my great-uncle's Buick? I keep looking at old Buick pictures, but it doesn’t quite fit the look of the ones I’ve seen. I believe it is between 1912/1918, and was a 5 passenger. The ones I’ve found close to it either has a spare on the right side, or round lights instead of the square. I thought it was the closest to the 1912 model 42.

Thanks in advance.
