Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Late 12-15 Horns

I realize most horns have been changed at one point or another, but I'm doing a study on horns that are supposedly on authentic untouched original cars. I began this study years ago, and would like to get opinions from our forum group. This pertains to the mounting bracket used on the horn. Here is what I've found: Late '12-13, round. 1914 oval, 1915 scalloped. This holds true for any make of horn.

Larry,

I agree. Sometimes the 1915 brackets are made of cast iron. All the single twist horns are made of brass, and all were painted black when new, except the door / screen assembly.

Larry... Here is the horn on my un-restored 1915 touring, SN 679,XXX. It's a January car. The steering column is a 14 column, with no holes for the horn button or tube for the wiring.horn

Second picture is 1914 then ? No pic of a '12-'13 ?
I reckon I have the wrong one on my '13, mount is oval. It was restored before I got it, so probably wrong then.

Ford used three brands of horn during 1912 - 15. They are:

Nonpariel



Rubes



Standard Thermometer

The Rubes horns for 1915 have a cast iron bracket:



Nonpariel 1915 has a bronze bracket:



Standard 1915 has a cast iron bracket too:

Blub Horns from 09 -15, the first is a early Rubes for 09 the 3 1910-12 horns are Rubes, note the angle of the end changed the last of the 3 is for a 12. 2nd row, 1st on the left is a 13 with the round mount,2 is a 14 Rubes, 3 is a 14 Standard. The last 3 are late 14 early 15. 1st one is Standard, the next is a Rubes which has a steel 90 degree elbow and the 3rd one in black has a brass 90 degree elbow



The next picture includes a 1 of 2 special horns for the torpedo. I have the other horn, it is not pictured, it is being repaired and will go on my 11 torpedo

Thanks so far. I think the '15 horns have been pretty much established, but I would like to see more '13-'14 pictures. By the way, all of the Rubes horns I own have a round mounting bracket, and are cast iron, and I believe them to be 1913.

I should also say that the Torpedo horn pictured here is Perry G's and will be going to its new home in Texas.

Larry,

This is the best picture I could get of the 14 as everything is tight in the garage for winter storage


The next two are of my early 13 (11-12)




While I was out taking these pictures, I thought this made a neat picture. A rose among the thorns
