Horn Identity

Post by Bruno Marshall » Tue Mar 13, 2018 6:45 am

I took this horn off of my 45 MB. I can find no markings on it, however it has several coats of paint which may obscure them. Can anyone give me any info on this horn and its value?

Bruno, when i had my willys 45 MB, i had a horn on it identical to this. I dont think they were standard fitting. Some one told me that type of horn was on Sherman tanks, why the bloody hell would a tank need a horn ????? :D

Thanks Mark. Some of the bolt-ons on my MB are of French origin. It could be it was a post-was donation Jeep to the French Army that somehow returned home. I wish I new its history.

Read about the short trumpet late WWII MB horn A-17715. Don't be so quick to discard that.
