I just picked this up at a really good deal. I like getting them like this and restoring them. The light works great, good motor, just some cosmetic issues. Nice clean glass dome. It is a 15A so it originally was a permanent mount. Someone must have added the magnetic plate later. The light was manufactured in February 1967. It was used in the late 60's and 70's by a Volunteer in Oklahoma. You can see it saw a lot of service. This is my before pics before I start the restoration. I will likely remove the magnet plate to restore it back to a permanent mount to match the tag. I haven't opened it up yet to see if the bulb is correct, but it is accurately bright when running.

Definitely needs restoration. The glass dome is a big plus!
 
Does anyone know where to find the original 1019 bulbs for these beacons? Or what other bulb would work in these lights?
