Does anyone know if you can rebuild a set of horns? I have a orginal set of 67 RS/SS camaro horns that do not work. I do have voltage to the plug when I press the horn button.

Yes you can but I hear it is a bear of a job to do correctly. The guys that do this for numbers matching corvettes charge a LOT to do the job. Kits are available from Zip products and elsewhere if your horns are dated correctly. The alternative is to leave the stockers where they are and mount a pair of aftermarket replacements somewhere out of sight. They will look stock and you still can go "beep". That is what I have.

Hotty,
Make sure it is not just a bad ground. It would be pretty unusual for both of them to go bad. Clean up all the connections, and take the mounting bolt out and clean it, and the metal it goes through, real good. That is the only ground for the horns.

I agree with Mark, just buy some cheap auto parts store horns and mount in a hidden area and run a wire to them. That is what I did. I tried to rebuild my horns with the Zip kit but it was to no avail. The coils on my horns were bad. Also, it's a pain
to disassemble and reassemble them.
Just repaint them and remount.
