This just arrived today.. Appears to be in good condition. It's a 6 volter so could not test drive it today.. Will do so tomorrow. S8B M-7...

B&M did their outstanding great job on your siren! They did a Super Chief for me many years ago. Working on the serial number, and some external cleaning to see what might come about for obvious repair needs. The rear band that covers the brushes is the most obvious thing missing so far..

Well.... it is alive!! Tested the beast today, and no issues on it's function, as a siren, so next will be a test on the brake to see if it works. Determined it was shipped in 1954 to a fire apparatus builder in the S.F. Bay Area.. Considering it's of that age, the beast is in fairly good and maybe one might say really good condition. When I woke it up today it growls like an old grizzly bear...
