You are right. They are hard to find. I am all out of the look a like ones.  GM use the same horn on buicks and some Chevrolet. The part number was different but the horn was the same. Dave

I've been looking for a trumpet horn - what numbers can I use - 945, 947, 948 ....???
I just want a louder horn - but prefer the Cadi or GM one of course.

Thanks,
Terry

Hi terry,
The two Cadillac Master Parts books that I have seen (dates covering 55-61 I think and 61-65) show different numbers, so my guess is that at some point they switched numbers during production on 1961.
So for 1961, my data shows that BOTH "945" & "947" are correct for 1961...making the "947" correct for 1962....correct me if I'm wrong guys.

Also, the "948" looks identical to the 945 & 947 in dimensions and sound...only difference is the numbers punched on it.
I currently have the 948 on my car, which I bought BEFORE I knew what the correct numbers were :-(
MAYBE will pay up for the correct numbered horn some day if not outrageously priced, will only get more expensive.

Also noticed that your radiator rubber flapper on top of radiator is installed incorrectly. I'll try and post a picture of the correct installation, if someone else doesn't beat me to it.

Peace!

Thanks,  I will look in my shop manual for the correct way.   I am sure I have lots of things wrong - some day I will get Mike Cascio to take a look at it.  I'm sure he will can point out many of the items.    So it looks like the three numbers I have listed are the ones that will work.  Thanks.


See attached, I see from my old picture how it goes,  of course the old one was in pretty bad shape.

This shows 947 horn for 1961-1963.  Don't know about the 945.

Hi Dave,
The "945" is listed in the GM Cadillac Motor Car Master parts book covering years '57-61
This is why I have noted that both numbers appear to be correct, must have had a model number change sometime during 1961 production.
