Just to note, this looks similar to the horn used in 1963 and 1964, but there were different tone horns (and part #'s) used in 1963 and 1964, so this horn is obviously not an exact original replacement for the full year range stated. It is a nice horn regardless. Here are more details I had posted on the CLC forum:

The 1964 Eldorado came with a Low-C long trumpet horn with slightly different tone than the B-Flat used in 1963 and earlier model years. It was also available as a dealer installed option on other 1964 Cadillacs, giving a full complement of 4 horns! The part # on that 64 Eldo horn is 199 9896 and is stamped 896.  
I finally found a nice one for my 64 Coupe de Ville about a year or so ago. It sure does sound nice. For the eBay horn it would be nice if they posted the part # as Buick, Olds and others also had similar horns available. I got lucky and found the correct original  Eldo horn for my 64, but the eBay horn would be a nice addition to an early 60's era Cadillac regardless.

Everything Jason said is correct.  I used the horn in my 62 and it looked good for car shows. I now have part number correct horn for my 62. I did not advertise it for the 61-64 caddy’s because it’s not part number correct. It does look like one however. 

At age 58, i'm just happy to have a horn period, bugger what note it plays. :-)

Oh I know, i'll go back to my naughty corner now.

It would make an excellent addition to any 1963/64 Cadillac. I was only pointing out additional information about the original horns. If I had not lucked up and found my 896 I would probably be looking seriously at this horn! 

Jason, The horn is stamp 12V 946. Dave

947 is the 61 to 63 Cadillac B-Flat Horn. I bet that was an Olds horn.  Someone with an BOP Master Parts Book could confirm. Either way it would be a nice addition for someone.

How much would something like that be worth?

I have seen the long horn sell for 400 dollars in the past for the correct year
200 is a very good price but it is a 62 horn looks like

Enjoy

As noted the 1961 to 1963 Long Trumpet Eldorado horn is a 947 horn, not a 946 horn.  I don't seem to have recorded anything but if memory serves 946 may be the Oldsmobile offering of a very similar horn.

My 1964 Cadillac electrical system is running around 17 volt which is to high,the alternator, battery and the voltage regulator was replaced but the voltage is still to high, could it be the pig tail that plugs into the voltage regulator.
