Just a note on trim level designations - at least in 51 and 52, possibly
earlier, they are all 5-Star - what people erroneously refer to as the Custom
Cab was a 5-Star Extra. Custom Cabs came along with F-100s in '53.
I have never seen a 51-52 with only one horn. In fact, I once used a
pair of the 6-volt trumpet horns on a '61 Renault Dauphine (12v), painted up
and mounted on outside of the hood! Maybe I shouldn't admit that ... High
School car, you know.
Anyway, the pair are short and long which changes the tone, the heads are
the same as far as I know. They come apart, so you can knock out the wads of
rust and such, but be real careful of the electric components once you have
the round cover off. There's a wound resistor in there that's quite fragile
(I think it's a resistor). They work real well, and for a surprisingly long
time, on 12V.

I was under the impression that the standard cab (5-Star Cab) had horns (ram
horn shaped) up front by the grill and the Five Star Extra had trumpet
mounted horns under the hood. All F1's were 5-Star Cab's, the deluxe was
called the 5 Star Extra Cab. The 5 Star Extra Cab had "Twin, matched-toned,
trumpet-blast, electric horns," that is a quote from the Ford F 1
Specifications form no. 7344 dated 5-52.

My 52 F4 also has the one trumpet type mounted to the underside of the hood.

Hello All
I've just got done taking four inches out of the top of my 52' F-1. Has
anyone ever cut new rubber for the windshield or back window? I was planning
on cutting them and gluing them back together. What type of glue should I
Also if anyone has chopped a top before did you convert to a one piece
