Where can I find a Bermuda Bell ? I don't know if they belong on a Model T or not, but I would like to buy an older one. What do they sound like? Are they about the Same? Thank you. Dan. Colorado

There was a Bermuda bell in my '22 Coupe when I bought it so I reconditioned it and left it in. It sounds just like the one that Roger posted. Kids and adults get a kick out of it. I was told but do not have any factual information to back it up that the bell was installed in the early cars to warn pedestrians of an approaching car.

There is a difference between the vintage nickeled brass ones vs the aluminum ones. The brass ones offer a loud, very rich sound compared to the aluminum ones. They sell for more too.

In 1954 I put one in my 36 Plymouth. It was still in the car when I sold it to the neighbor across the street for $25 with a install it yourself rear axle assembly. I have wished several times I still had that bell.

I have one on my '14 touring and was told that it was a warning chime. Trolly cars of the era had bells to warn pedestrians and it was logical to have a similar warning bell on cars. Don't know how true that is but it makes sense.

I have seen them on early electric cars.
