They had two standard and a third (AC-2705) was optional on the Speedsters (and also E-series trucks).

Skip, I believe that the third (trumpet style) horn was not only standard equipment on the Speedsters, but standard equipment on all '55 President series cars.

Overall length approx. 13"....Length of 'horn' itself 10" (Maybe Studebaker should have called it the 'John Holmes' option?) :lol:

Thanks. Was not near my car parts books, so was going from memory.
