    Yankee Solar Strobe model 360 X

    Those are rare Tony, and any Yankee dome in decent shape is worth something. The plastic was so thin on those domes they did not hold up well. Nice grab!

    1966 Dodge Coronet Burbank PD

    Picked this car up awhile back. I own several restored police cars and before I buy any they have to either be 100% accurate or be in condition that they can be made 100% accurate. This car was restored by an ex-Burbank PD officer so it was done right. I fell in love with the lighting equipment...

    Nice Surprise

    I use the mid 50s as a point for when many of the 6 volts were replaced by 12 volts. Atleast Ive seen that formula work out pretty well for the lights that I have. My guess is most all 6 volts would be pre-1960 as an estimate

    Can you identity the Beacon?

    Exactly, thats why I held off saying it was a McDermott. I have one and the base is nothing like that one on the car. Also looks like its missing the center knob on the top like the McD has.

    Nice Surprise

    The closest way that I could tell is that the motors are stamped with a date. One of mine has a year of 1974.=, assuming its the original motor. Not sure what the other one is. So atleast thats an estimate. The Model 54 motors are the similar to the older FS motors.

    Nice Surprise

    Also the Model 54s used a different motor.

    Nice Surprise

    The earlier model # for the same light was the Model 54. The tags tended to fade out over time. You got a good deal. I had to find two of these for a police light bar project that I was putting together. They arent that common. When they do pop up its usually with an amber dome. Both of mine...

    6v vs 12 volt issues

    I hear ya. Come to think of it Im not sure if I tried running a 4 bulb with motor on a 30 amp 6V converter. The things I run work fine on those converters but then Im not pulling that many amps like you are.

    6v vs 12 volt issues

    I use those 12 volt to 6 volt ( 30 amp) "step down" converters on all my 6 volt lights. I run them off of a 12 volt 30 amp Pyramid power supply and it works fine...

    Wanted WTF Old Lightbar

    You better join some of the Facebook police car restoration sites to get some help. Ive been down the same road with several police car restorations and I know how hard it can be to source some of this equipment.

    MARS Aurora Borealis Model 400

    Get ready for the offers. They are very desireable for collectors. Be cautious of any low ballers.

    YankeeRay?

    To bad, a clear Yankee dome is extremely rare. In fact any Yankee dome is rare because they didnt hold up well. Looking closely that one is damaged from what I can see.

    Wanted Federal C5GA or C5GB, and A/S antenna ball mount

    C5's seem to be harder to find then some of the other models. I was looking for one for quite awhile and ended up buying from Gary Cahill (Rescue Market) fully restored. He doesnt always have them either.
