Hi, it looks to me like a re badged North American Signal 250 series beacon. Attached is an example of one of mine(3 bulb carriage not a 2 bulb). They rebadged this beacon for several different companies through the years. You may even find a model tag underneath on or around the motor ( see attached pic). Take good look at the underside when it arrives. NAS still has parts for these beacons. I hope this helps.

Chris

I agree, has every appearance of being a re-branded North American Signal Model 250. It is one of their older units as the bulb holder assembly resembles a can, similar the Federal Signal Model 17.

Thanks for the posts!
Here's the details...
HAD a 250-33 dome on it; and having a small inventory of NAS parts
(small collection of North American) here is the cleaned up version.

The 'original' dome was red! QUITE the fade over the years... but lights up and motor works; I had helped an acquaintance with some vintage Whelen beacons back along, and he called and asked if I would like this ($0). Nice to be thought of...
Now to find a replacement base gasket.

Very nice and you might want to contact dcaptain.com (dcptain@aol.com) who has gasket material for Beacon Rays, and he may have some generic gasket material to fit this. Also Gary at rescuemarket.com has gaskets.
