My recently acquired 1970 T120R Bonneville has
two Clear Hooters horns. The right side horn says
Low Note and the left side High Note. Is that normal
and why? Thanks.

Twin horns are generally a 'Low' and a 'High'.

WHY? For a "prettier" sound, of course!

For some years of Chevrolet, a third horn was an option for the same reason:
two horns were the same sound, the optional third was of a different tone.
