Default Free ooga horn

A friend gave me a free ooga horn on which is written 12 volts. I would like to use it in a 36 Ford coupe with a 6v system....IS THIS POSSIBLE ?

Test it on a 6 volt battery. It is possible.... but it will run half the speed (unless it's digital but it's probably just a electric motor) and most likely it won't be that loud or you'll get a "oo" but no "ga" .

If it is one of those cheap soprano sounding after market horns, it may just sound more authentic while operating on 6 volts.
