Anyone know the date range on these? We found one in our agency storage room. Might want to restore it for display at the Sheriff's Office.

The Twin Beacon Ray made its debut in 1964. The TwinSonic came a few years later.

I think the first Twin Sonic light bars were made in 1967, but they didn't start to sell in big numbers until around 1972.   CrownVic97 would be right about the model 11.

Wailer is correct, the TwinSonic was introduced late in 1967, but they did not sell large quantities of them until the early 1970's.  The Twin Beacon Ray was introduced in 1964 and from what I can determine, production ceased some time during 1978.

And that is a beautiful, 1974 vintage, Twin Beacon Ray in the first post.

They were good lightbars, but I'm sure people had enough of the chain screwing up in an 1.5 inch working space and chucking them off porches (  ;)  , ChargerLighting  :lol: )

I gotta find some info on how to get the one I just got from Ryan all shined up.

That bar is in really nice shape.

And that is one of the big benefits of the TwinSonic, easy access to the drive chains.
