According to the parts catalog, the "A" note appeared on the 55-70, 76-79, and 81-82 cars.  And the "C" note appeared on the 76-80 and 81-82 cars. The two remaining possibilities would then be "D" (low-#1892162) and "F" (high-#1892163). 
 
SWAG ...
 
The '72 has a 032 horn, as well as does my '73. My untrained ear coupled with my weak horn, makes me believe the sound is a low note. Thus my guess would be a "D" note.

The NCRS Judging Manual probably lists the notes of the horns if you want to stay factory correct.

Pulled the horn and it had an A on it. Talking to the rebuild guy and he said he's seen them with all sorts of letters on them- some not matching any of the notes...

    Greetings, I also have a 72' the horn is 10/7 out of service. I cannot find any markings or letters on it. I have a single horn from a 72 caprice classic and am going to see if it will fit the ticket. What can it hurt, it'll get er thru the vacination station.

I believe all the bumper cars have two horns.
