Saw these over at www.vintage-mustang in the "for sale" items. Worth it? 50$ shipping included.

I haven't check lately but Branda sold a repro that looks closer and includes a closer to original bezel,

Was the "S" version horn switch placement dfferent than the "R" version placement?  Higher or lower in position to radio knob also? 5003 seems to move around depening who had it. Just wondering if there is a "correct" spot?

Not typically different locations. 003 being the first car is not the best car to copy for standardized details . The race models typically had the horns taken off. The driver didn't need to honk out on the track at speed to warn someone to get out of the way.  ;) I know shameless sarcasm . Of course you will want horns if driving your car on the street.

They could vary some. It was meant to basically line up with the radio knobs up and down .side to side some were centered between the edge of the cluster and the radio knobs . Some slightly to one side or the other . From the variations it gives the impression the hole was put in free hand. If they had a template it didn't work the same every time.
