    Has anyone found a good substitute for the horns in the 66?

    I am looking at Sparton horns
    They don't have a changeable mounting bracket like the Prestolite horns
    There are two style for the Sparton horns
    Early Spartons bend away from the body and the later horns bend over the body

    Can someone with original horns tell me if the bend in the bracket is away from the horn or back over the body of the horn?

    I need function and close appearance is enough as long as they work and bolt in place of OEM horns

    Photos from restored cars, not mine.
    Hope this helps.

      Why not use original horns -- they're loud -- they fit -- they look right?

      They quit working years ago and disappeared while the car was apart
      That's why I was asking about them so I know which horns to buy

      The Prestolite horns have a removable mount that can be reversed but they are no longer available
      Leaving me the only option of buying the Sparton repops

      2808869/868 hi-lo respectively.
      I just searched EBay, they are all over there, even brand new from Chrysler. Not only correct but with the correct bracket.
      Search "2808869 Horn" and "2808868 Horn"

        If you want to take a chance, I know of about 4 66 Chargers that may have them still. These are junkyard cars that I have gone to at times and get a few parts off of.

          Thank you
          That's very kind
          But I would rather have new
          I just needed to know which set to buy since it has been years since I seen the originals
