    F body horns

    Did f bodies come with two horns or did some just have one?

    On mine, the PO eliminated the horn and when I was putting things right I only remember finding one connector. Although I suppose there could have been a little pigtail splitter to do two and that was also eliminated?

    If it was equipped with dual horns the first plug would have a daisy chain jumper to the second and they'd be mounted on each side of the center brace.

    Some did have only one horn, mine is one of them. It has 3 now though so it's got a "tri-note", mounted behind the bumper.

    Ok, both cars have two plugs but only one horn. Of course the RR only had one beep beep horn.

    A Roadrunner shouldn't have a dual lead. Just a single long one, cuz the horn is pass side mounted.

    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.

    No definitely has two plugs. Real 77 RR with single Beep Beep horn. The horn in the pic is a replacement horn so someone added it or replaced it. You can tell by the nut holding the bracket on the one horn. May be a 76 RR but not original. I had a virtually untouched 76 RR that I sent to the crusher a few years ago that had a beep beep single horn with dual plugs and a it was mounted on the drivers side IIRC.

    One day when I was at the Lake Orion CLCD assembly plant there was a guy in the repair welder section of the line who was seriously high on acid and welding just about anything that went by on the line. Sometimes it doesn't matter what the section foreman says about how to do a job, it gets done however the worker feels like doing it. Sometimes things run out and they make do with parts from a different option bin. Good times when we get here and things don't match the build sheet.

    On the RR I referenced, the dual horn option J31 IS shown on the tag as being the way the car was ordered and built.

    Don't forget when it comes to Mopars, never say never. Everytime something is known to be the absolute only correct way the cars were built, an original car will show up that proves that to be wrong and can back it up with build sheets, tags or other paperwork.
