I slid that mast jacket up.
They cancel now, but still no horn.
The T/sigs never worked right in that car
since day one. For years, my dad had to hold the
lever down so the left side would even work.

As far as the horn, I'm thinking an air horn with
a remote button (Maybe where the washer pump
switch is. Something else that never worked from
day one.)

I wonder about a train horn. That would be good
for that car. Scare the ____ out of people. Heh heh.

Use a tester and check to see if your horns work in the first place. Adding a 1961-63 electric washer pump is easy. Adding the correct hoses and nozzles if needed can be more challenging than adding a pump.

Default Horn Ring Assy

Here are some pictures I had of the horn ring assembly on the steering wheel. They're not great, but may help.

Thanks for the pictures Nyles, that helps for sure. I had no idea what kind of parts should be there. Unfortunately I'm seeing that I miss quite some parts.
