Aermore Whistle 

I just bought this Aermore whistle at an auction and was told that it is an exhaust whistle. At the end of the pipe are the words “Aermore Patd. Jan 13 1912, Aug. 20 1912, USA.” Does anyone have any information on this whistle?

These were a common accessory for Model T Fords and other teens and 20's cars.Threaded onto a cutout and attached to the exhaust pipe by alligator hose clamps after drilling proper size holes in the pipe and installing a asbestos gasket (not harmful to your health)a butterfly inside the pipe would divert exhaust gas into the whistle.I use one on a 1920 T delivery truck and a 24 T touring. (see By manipulating throttle and cutout cable, it can be made to sound like a steam locomotive. I also use one on a 7 hp economy engine and have seen one on a 15-30 IHC tractor. A healthy blast of air will also work. Thanks for the opportunity to share. Gil
