I checked NAPA, no luck, I found a few similar used horns but didn't want to take the chance on non working parts and new Remy-Delcos were too pricey, so I finally went to e-bay to try my luck with some after market new stock. I decided on a pair of new Seger horns made by a company in Turkey for the French and German market. Unfortunately, even the Turks can't resist the lure of cheep Chinese labor. After free shipping from Korea via Pennsylvania, fees by e-bay and Paypal, a sell of $13.00 at hopefully at least 70% margin, they may have made $5.00 a pair.
I have to say, the horns work great, I had to customize a bracket for them as the "universal" bracket they came with was too short and the originals I had were rust fused to the old horns. I used some leftover window metal from my last house project and they were an easy install, although my car sounds more like a Peugeot than an American car from the 50s. My son was horrified that I would put non-original parts on the car. I told him it was OK to use non-original parts if they are for safety reasons, like seat belts... He didn't really buy it, and I kept thinking about those guys that put semi horns on antiques, and what would make them want to do that. Oh well, I just want to get it on the road legally, I have to be careful now, because, I'm so close, I could cut some corners and regret it later, it's a quandary I'll have to live with.
