Dallas County Texas Code 3 XL

I picked up this Dallas County Code 3 XL on eBay a few months back on a whim based on what I thought I saw in the pics of it lit up. It looked like it had a rear amber cutout. SO I bought it, figuring it might be something interesting.

When I got it, I was suprised to see it had two rear inboard amber cutouts, independant rotators and a property tag for Dallas County (Sheriff's Department I guess???). It does not have select alert but when the inboard rotators pass the amber it gives the effect of alternating flashers. Works pretty well.

I plan on a complete restoration, including new domes or at least replacing these cooked ones. They are shot from the Texas sun.

That's a good score. Hope it gets to showroom quality real easy.

Nice find! I've always wondered why some departments used end caps in the opposite color...
I dunno, but Chesterfield County, VA now has an interesting arrangement.
