Can you describe what a "rim blow" horn is? I have never heard horns called that and i'm curious. I am suspecting it's some type of air horn....

The term was given to me by two different steering wheel restorers. Not an air horn, but electrical horn mechanism that is actuated by depressing a rubber/vinyl liner on the inside of the steering wheel. Ones fingers could honk the horn from a large portion of steering wheels inner circumference. Apparently besides some GM cars, older Mustangs and other cars of that era had this type of method to blow/honk the horn. If you can't help a reference would be appreciated. Mike V.

Thanks for clearing that up.
Now it makes total sense and i know exactly what you meant!
There are no kits that i am aware of only finding a used one somewhere and that might be tough so i will open your question up for others in case they can source it for you.
Good luck!
