I don't know how many times I watched that movie at the Friday night movies in elementary school.

That's a contender for most the rebadged beacon ever. I think they are all made by North American Signal. But I've seen them rebadged by many companies. Yankee comes to mind. On a sidenote North American still makes these!

Jaws 2 (1978)

Chief Brody’s Chevy Blazer, town ambulance and the police boat. A few noteworthy points:

- Chief Brody’s Blazer in the first Jaws movie was tan and white with an all-red Federal Signal VisiBar. In this movie the Blazer is white and blue with an all-blue VisiBar.

- The ambulance in Jaws 2 clearly has a TwinSonic 12x lightbar. Nothing special there. But.. it appears to have a pair of TwinSonic CTS domes. The driver’s side has an amber cutout on the rear. The passenger side has an amber cutout on the front (because it’s a CTS dome on the wrong side). Actually looks cool. Now I’m wondering why we never saw any other TwinSonic dome cutouts in a greater variety color combinations. Especially since they appear to bring some diversity to the appearance of the flashes.. even on the 12, 12x.. and all the other TwinSonic iterations. The only example I can think of is the Multnomah Sheriff’s custom CTS driver’s side dome (Blue dome with two cutouts.. red to the front and amber to the rear).

- The Amity Police boat has a TwinSonic bar in the early shots. Once Chief Brody crashes the boat into small island of rocks housing a utility hub it suddenly has a Signal Stat Dual Comm bar. Obviously two different boats.

I love the fact that they had CTS domes "lying around" probably so they used two driver side domes on one bar.
