Hi,
We have covered this a few times on the forum, a good search at the top right will point you to those discussions.

There were two Master Parts books put out by GM/Cadillac where the 1961 Cadillac appeared.
One book covered from 1957-1961 (I think, and this is the book I have), and the second book covered from 1961-1965 (I think).

One book shows the 945 as the part number, the other shows the 947 as the part number.
Obviously a change in part number during production of the 1961 Cadillac, which is why I believe some of our Cadillac trumpet owners from 61 have the 945 and others with a '61 or '62 have the 947...so either a 945 or 947 would be correct for a 1961 Cadillac, and a 947 correct for a 1962 Cadillac....1963 and after have completely different Eldorado horns

Kinda confusing, but I believe this to be correct...someone chime in on this and confirm.
Thanks!

Perk is absolutely correct! Just like the early 1962 had glass windshield washing jars and the later 1962 has plastic container.
