Jim Carter sells the straight bracket, and has this note:
Secures the original horn to the intake manifold. Is correct for the 1937-1952 Chevrolet and 1939-1952 GMC. Not correct if you use a manifold secured oil filter.
Jim Carter Trivia: The horn and oil filter can not fit in the same space. Thus this comfirmation requires a different design horn bracket. ( Once included in with the dealer installed oilr filter assembky)
The bold text was me, the typos are Jim's. wink

That could shed some light on why there are a couple different types.

That got me thinking that I may be mistaken about which one I have, because even though my truck had a remote oil filter, it was mounted on the inner fender rather on the manifold in front of the carb. I just went on a quick search to confirm, but couldn't find my horn and bracket. It got repainted a while back and stored away in the trailer and it's below zero right now, so didn't spend much time digging.

ndkid275 Who knows is right GM done what they had to to sell trucks,once bought a 365 HP Vette engine from junkyard,car was out there wrecked. Engine was chromed like they were,years later found it didn't have the high performance rods in it did have 2.02 heads. So GM is a mystery still today.
