    That's not a real light....

    Kinda in rough shape, but I bet with a little time and elbow grease, it'd be a nice beacon again! https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&toolid=10001&campid=5338077216&icep_item=113979510138

    R/A Model 25

    Minnesota-style AeroDynic! In the years before laws changed in that state, most wreckers ran red/amber. It's definitely a unique setup for solid colors!

    It was a Tripp-Lite kinda day.

    Tripp Lite (later becoming Tri Lite) beacons starting in the late 1980s through today had the stick-on badges. Older beacons up until the late 80s had the rivited, metal badges. So somewhere from the mid-60s to the real early late 80s is your beacon. They don't have definitive dates of...

    Vitalite on Engine.

    I can confirm this. We have a local classic vehicle collector in my home county, and he took delivery on a 1969 Kenworth pumper truck from Seattle FD. All the red lenses were gone per the strict guidelines the fire department set for the sale of the truck to a civilian. So, in addition to a...

    Check out this out

    I know one thing all major lightbar/beacon brands had in common at one time: They all relied on GE to light their products ;)

    Signal Stat Bar and Lights

    Them Ford LTDs did not have the full door. The pillar is stationary, so what you see is correct. See example below ;)

    Well, I'm done with code 3 products,

    I'd have gone full a-hole mode right there on that person. Wow, lots of personnel retraining if you're telling customers to stop loosing or breaking their product. That's money lost, not gained.

    Federal Signal Model 044

    I would go with a Federal FA-3 alternating flasher or a Tridon EL13A-1 alt flasher. You won't be able to use the original can flasher holder, but at least you'll have a good working flasher to show off the beacon.

    Federal Signal Electronic Siren Serial Numbers

    I seen that! Weird why they left those two out o_O.

    Federal Signal Model 044

    For period correctness, go with the 537 flasher. For a consistent alternating flash rate, use a Tridon EL13A-1.

    The 4416R is officially out of production.

    I bought six additional red GE 4416Rs off ebay, 3 being NOS red glass for a good price. Nothing lasts forever, so it was a matter of time before GE tossed the 4416R's towel in.
