Need the brain trust's assessment: other than incorrect domes, is this bar authentic and complete? Are the 374 domes hard to obtain?

Thanks.

The can lights and speaker are definitely incorrect. Pretty sure the bar is wrong, too. Can’t tell about beacons without seeing the tags. Original 374 lenses are very hard to come by.

Its an Authentic signal stat crossbar,beacons and flasher cans. The domes are incorrect and it is not a nypd bar. Nypd used trio cans rebranded as signal stat #672 i believe?

The Signal-Stat bar have the feets for hook-on mount and not for gutter mount as used by NYPD.
The lights are Signal-Stat 374s but with Stratolite 80 lenses.
The speaker is an Atlas-Sound HPR-70W and there are a pair of turn signal light flashers.
Not much NYPD there as previous mentioned.

In addition to what has been mentioned, I see one other discrepancy. At least one of the two beacons appears to be a model 377 (tilted lamps)(which NYPD used only in 1972 as a stand-alone beacon on an extension base), whereas the beacons on an actual NYPD light bar should both be model 374. I imagine whoever is bidding on this thinks it is an authentic NYPD set-up.

Sold! For $1,136 plus shipping.
I bet that seller is pretty happy! Even though it wasn't authentic NYPD, I hope the seller packages the whole thing well for the buyer.

Sadly, there is a sucker born every minute. I saw it on eBay and the first error that caught my eye were the incorrect can lights. If the driver's side beacon is actually a Signal Stat 377, those are rare, but I doubt that parting out this bar would recoup the total cost of purchase.

If you read it carefully the seller never claims it's an NYPD bar.
Those can lights might be correct for an early generation McDermott Riser bar so they may in fact be Signal-Stat cans. But for a hodgepodge of lights and speaker it's definitely a ripoff at that price.
