1909 MAXWELL BRASS HORN, EXCELLENT CONDITION $350.00 PLUS SHIPPING
Glen.. I'm not 100 percent sure, but I don't think this is a Maxwell horn. I know for sure it doesn't fit the 2-cylinder cars. The bracket is wrong. And I'm pretty sure they used the same bracket on the touring cars.
The '08 and earlier Maxwells seem to have had a variety of horn options. But, the mounting brackets seem pretty consistent in the cars that I've seen. Here is a typical example of the horn mounting on an '08 Maxwell LC.
Correct Eric. The 09 through 12 had the bugle type horn, but the same 3.5" tall bracket.
I am no Maxwell expert, but was told it was for an early Maxwell. All I know is this is a very nice horn and would look good on any car. However the mounting bracket has two 3.2 inch long horizontal mounting brackets separated by 2 inches and 2 mounting holes. It is multiple twist and different than the horn shown. Thanks for the info. Glen
For a few years I had a Maxwell 1911 AB with 2 cylinder motor. The car was complete but needed restoration. I sold it to a friend who IS restoring it. It has the same vertical straight piece of steel mounting on the right hand side as pictured by Eric and I saw a few brass horns that had what was most definitely the same mounting type with a vertical single inline metal piece mounting as shown in Eric's picture. All of the horns I saw were too rough for me to restore so I kept looking.
The photo I just got off the Yahoo Maxwell group forum. Merle gave me the photo many years ago and I put it on the website. The horn is off the 1909-1912 Maxwell A series cars. Maxwell guys will know who Merle is. He has forgotten more than most people know. I remember seeing a photo showing Merle retrieving a rough Maxwell find back in 1948. And he's still at it.
Ok, So what does it fit? It is a very nice horn and belongs on a nice car. Glen
