Early style horn contacts

I am looking for information on the horn contacts in the steering wheel for an early style, pre-1974ish I think. I know they are not the same as the later years with the flat metal disk and 3 screws.

My horn button/ring is much larger than all of the contact kits I have bought. It is a gladiator ring/button without the bar under it. Having one heck of a time finding a contact kit.

Sounds like you have a base model '63-'72 steering wheel (and colum?). The next trim level up got that bar under it. I have no idea where to find a new one, but I have a spare contact plate (assuming you want the one that's just inside the button). You'll want to verify that it's an early one of course.

I honestly have no idea what I am needing. When I found a rhino grill, the owner also had the horn button and bezel but not the rest of the column. I have been sitting on it for many years. Not a clue what it came from or what the contacts even look like.

Well after many hours of searching, it seems the early FSJs used the same horn contacts as the 57-66 studebakers. I ordered a set and will see how it goes.
