I think I have one of those in stock.
I'll have a look tomorrow.
The one on the car, however, is off a 5a ;-)

Found mine while looking for something else (which I didn't find)
And it doesn't look anything like yours, could it be a dip-switch?
The mechanism is fine, complete with spring, but one of the wires has disappeared completely.
Probably why I changed it.
It should be possible to solder a new wire in, I'll have a go when I have time 8)
If I don't misplace it again ...

I'm sure my Coupé had two stalks originally (well, when I bought it 30 years ago).
Also that it didn't have a floor dip-switch.
I don't remember where the horn push was.
Current configuration is horn and indicators on single column stalk (SE5a) and dip on old overdrive switch.
What year is your car, mine is 1968 - 50th birthday next month!

I believe so - the horn did have its own stalk. On the S6 coupe (or might be the Sabre) I think it was a "press any way you want" switch for the horn (also known as a trembler switch) - not sure if that was the same for the V6 as well?
