Anyone have any insight on the identification of this horn? I bought it at a swap meet and told it was a Model T horn, but I am not sure that is correct. I am not able to find any markings on it. Thanks.

May be a Delco-Remy. Looks much like mine, including the mounting bracket.

Thanks Dave. Are you using the Delco Remy on your speedster?

It is a Delco. Very common horn used on Chev's in the '30s, and pickups too.

Well, it is good to know what type of horn it is. Glad I did not pay much for it. It may still get used until I get a proper horn. Thanks!

Tim - Yes, I'm using one on my Speedster. It's the one my dad, and his dad before him had in it since the late 20s. I remember the sound of it from when I was a kid, and wanted to keep it in the car when I rebuilt it.
