Colin,

It is not a typical horn button for the Model T Ford. Below is the 1915-1917ish horn button (from page 33 of the Jul - Aug 1989 "Vintage Ford" used by permission).



Ford of Canada used the same basic style button the 1915-1917ish USA cars used, but mounted it to a nut on the steering wheel as shown in the posting at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/50893/69100.html

For other Model T Horn button styles please see Lang's or one of the other vendor catalogs.

Your horn button may or may not have been an accessory from back in the day. I do not recall seeing one like that before.

Respectfully submitted,

This button threads on in place of the steering wheel nut

Colin,

If the threads match the Model T steering wheel nut threads then it may have been an accessory horn button. If so, I would suspect that it either was fairly robust and was used to secure the steering wheel on the shaft. Or, there was another nut that secured the steering wheel and it screwed on after the primary nut.

Was there any box or literature that came with it that might help date the button?

Respectfully submitted,

Hap Just the horn button in a box of parts that has not seen the light of day for 30 plus years.
