Motorola Golden Voice
The Golden Voice iHorn is made from a Motorola 1941 Model 701 Golden Voice car radio speaker and a Grover Products air horn. Paul Galvin, owner of Galvin Manufacturing Corporation, a battery manufacturer who made a device that allowed radios to run on household current. In the 1930's the big radio companies all ended in "ola" so Galvin, who was then moving into making automobile radios, changed the name of his company to Motorola. 1950’s was a post World War II explosion of automobile production and sales with almost 58,000,000 automobiles produced and sold, compared to a total U.S. population of only 179, 323,175!
Grover Products has been manufacturing truck air horns for over seventy years. While the exact age of these horns is unknown, it is believed they were made in approximately the 1930’s. America moves products over the road in big rigs. Big rigs rely on Grover Horns to alert other drivers and elicit the glee of little children who solicit a friendly tap of the horn.
So rock the road singing it out loud and proud, with The Golden Voice iHorn.
