Back in the '60's & '70's, maybe a bit sooner or later, the Indiana State Police had a single rotating beacon with clear dome. It had four sealed beam lights. Three were red and the fourth one white at a forty-five degree angle facing up. Can someone tell me what this light was?
 
My guess is a Beacon Ray 175 (like NYPD had) or a Dietz Hill Light.
 
It's not the Dietz as I'm sure they had a curved dome. Looking at pictures of the Beacon Ray, it looks like they have three sealed beams and I'm 90% sure the ISP ones had four. But then it was forty, or so, years ago and time has an affect on memory.
 
I did a Google search before asking but must have not gone far enough or didn't use the correct search terms. I've often thought something like that, only smaller version, would look good on my car. However I'd want it permanently and no way I can do that with the moon (sun) roof I have. That's why my GMRS antenna is mounted at the back of the roof.
 
The pictures and description are of a standard height Federal 175 Beacon Ray.
