[quote="Bruce Grant"]I have 2 horns off cars that were in pieces -- one a 53 and one from a 56 coupe. Hopefully the pictures are sufficient and maybe someone can help me determine the correct one, or neither --? Thanks, Bruce

The '53 parts book (top) and '55 parts book (bottom) list a normal HO/FSA 6/3 and an extra loud or road horn HO/FSA 6/4.

Most if not all '53s came with only one horn on the driver's side. The most common is the 6/4 road horn.
My '53 came with this HO/FDF 6/147 with a VW stamp on the back. My car was a German delivery 1300N that may have been outfitted different from the Hoffman cars - or it could be a replacement by a PO. I have a HO/FSA 6/4, but if I can get the 6/147 to work I plan to re-install it.
