    I'm thinking the J31 option with the RR package was for a '76/'77, or even '76 only (I'm not sure for a fact though). The more I learn about the "early" f's, the more I find out how different they...

    Unless it has the dual horn option or dual horns that were included with a couple different option packages, then a RR doesn't have a beep-beep horn.
