BB I think it was a 1953.

If no one minds I will take 396's place.

Well no one said any thing so here goes.

What car was the first to have the horn button in the center of the steering wheel. They also were the first to have electric door latches. And in what year

The horn button, I'm not sure what year the door latches were. So all you have to do is name the car.

BB It wasn't Caddy. Wrong year also.

Bob

I will be gone for a few hours Have to go get my blood cleaned, it's a PITA but it keeps me alive, so I won't be able to answer any post, thanks guys.

Well no one has jumped in in the last couple of days so I'll answer it.

The first automobile to have a center steering wheel horn button was the 1915 Scripps-Booth Model C. The car was also the first with electric door latches.

Let us know if this is correct Bob because I've got a doosy for the next question!

I don't have even a hint of a clue. The earliest American V8 I know of was the 1917 Chevy.
