Mounts on top of column. Also suits all Canadian cars. Rare to find whole switch. Will need new centre button from vendors. $55 postage paid.

How does it mount on top of the column?

I don't think it's for a Ford.

Adam, this one was fitted to a Canadian sourced car in Australia. The metal housing has the tabs straight down the side. Two screws attach it to the nut which holds the steering wheel in place.

On 15-17 cars the same housing has the tabs bent at right angles, and the two screws attach it to threaded holes in the steering column housing.

Here is a picture of the Ford switch most of us are familiar with.

I asked “how does it mount” because the one he shows could be some Australian/Canadian variant most of us aren’t familiar with...

And I was typing at the same time Allan was. Thanks for the additional info Allan!

Just a "heads-up" for anyone looking for a horn button similar to the one shown in the photo posted above by Adam Doleshal.

Dodge Brothers used the same button on their cars through the mid-20's. Theirs was mounted on the inner driver's door and was actuated by the driver's elbow.
