Hello,
can anyone tell me when the Push horn was available on a T? I know the BULB/Squeeze horn was around earlier, but what about the Aaaooga Horn?
Cheers

As accessory, for automobiles, these were around in the 'teens.

Ford didn't provide the T with a push horn. Only the bulb and later electric magneto and electric buzz horn, no motor horns.


1913

The bulb horn was replaced by a magneto horn in 1915. Neither one was very loud, so in photos from the teens you see a lot of accessory mechanical horns. In addition to the ones shown in Dan's ads there were several other brands.
