    i would have to look when i get home at any markings on them, but i have two that look just like that, i have one mounted on each fender wall. they were not hooked up when i got the jeep and they are still not hooked up.

    I should mention - SSDutch has one that looks like this:

    And I also found a spare one of those - its more of a pancake looking horn, and definitely more of a roadrunner sound.

    I've been looking for the Beep Beep version. No one seems to sell them.

    From that CJ3B page:
    Sounds like the U model is the later Jeep horn.

    And here is what I found in my 1959 -->[​IMG]
    It's a Sparton, but do not know model. Only one terminal, so I've got to put a relay in...

    The "U" model does only have one terminal, but also a ground screw.

    The flatter version in the engine bay pic has two terminals.

    I have seen 2 versions with 2 terminals, one is a screw type and the other uses the packard push on type. Maybe the screw type are 6 volt? I got mine used on ebay and cleaned it up. It is the push on type terminals. It's not as loud as the generic ford horn I had, but it is original (looking).
    One thing to watch if getting one used, it may be 6 volts. Mine is stamped 12v on the case, so should be able to ask the seller to verify. Actually a 6 may hold up to 12 volts, just work even better, especially given how often it gets used.
