I’ve always been a fan of the Disneyland Monorail, and love the sound of its horn.
Browsing through the net and YouTube, I found a couple people that actually installed one on their vehicle.
I had to have one of my own, so I found someone that sells the horns (Grover 1054 & 1055), although there is no official KIT to install them.
After a LOT of research and a little technical know-how, I was able to install my own Monorail horn, with a LOT of patience and luck with the size of them. These horns are around 4Ft long, and trying to fit them on a 97 T-Bird was not easy. The Vaiair Compressor/Tank sits nicely in the trunk, with the two horns mounted underneath, on either side of the spare tire indent (mounted sideways). This thing at full blast (150 PSI), may not compete with a K5LA, but it’s definitely different, and gets your attention!
Couple YouTube Videos:
Those are cool my wife wants a set for her minivan. Lol.
Dang those are long. It’s nice to see something different.
you can get those horns on air horns of texas. thats where I got mine from but I have a 1043 and 1042.
Actually, that’s exactly where I got them.
Just wasn’t sure if it was OK to advertise competitors on this site. So yeah, nice kit, grand total set me back about 7 bills. Well worth it for me, love honking it every day!
They do sound like the monorail…sweet. That tunnel has to be the one on Sepulveda that goes under the airport runways, right?
Yes, thanks for the recognition, most people don’t even know what I’m talking about- Monorail, what’s that?
And yes that is Sepulveda, southbound going under the LAX runway, heading to the 105 east (which I missed, with the horn & camera & all), good eye. Great tunnel for the horn!
Awesome. I’ve got the 1056 dual air horn. The air fitting is smaller than 1/4 inch. Did you find 1/8 inch? I can’t seem to find that at the hardware or auto parts store? Am I missing something or do I just need a 1/8 inch male fitting?
Welcome to the forum. Hornblasters carries all kind of fittings so moight check with them. You can also try Grainger, McMaster-Carr, e-bay, and amazon. We carry mostly 3/8" fittings.
Great! Thanks for the lead.
Aren’t you worried about the horns getting damaged that close to the road and speed bumps?
