Right hand steering? Yes, on an American car of 1913 that was not
unusual. Before the 1908 launch of the Ford Motor Company's Model T, virtually every car in the United States placed the steering wheel on the right. In fact, Ford only made the change to make it easier for people entering on the passenger side to avoid oncoming traffic. But by the late 1910s left hand steering was generally accepted, aided by the fact that a growing number of the cars in the USA were Fords. Pierce Arrow was one of the last to drop right hand steering, and that was about 1920.
