Yes, it was a Canadian car, a 500 coupe. Come to think of it, the rocker
panel lips were blacked out too. Has anyone with a U.S. car noticed the
blacked-out lips?
My assembly manual shows the horn location being like '64s starting on
7-29-63, so maybe yours was made on or after that day...

yea, Vairily ... Shaun
