Tennessee Highway Patrol Lights

Back in the mid to late 70's THP used Visibars and Twinsonics on the marked units. They also used for a limited time some strobe lights(2) mounted on a bar with rear facing lights also. The strobes were about the same size as the Whelen but i was thinking they were a little taller. Does anyone remember this set-up or have any pictures?

Thanks! I wasn't aware that they used them up into the 80's, Don't look bad on that matchbox fury.

Let's see... according to the ancient Whelen catalogs, that setup would be a Model 3338 for the strobes/crossbar. Not sure make/model the siren speaker is.. possibly a Whelen model SA-390-R or a FS CP-100?

If you buy one to mount on a Whelen bar, look at the direction of the mounting foot.

Will Do, Thanks
The 2 speakers on EBAY are SA390-R (R for ROOF)


Look at the mounts on the crossbars, they are different. The speaker itself is the same, just the mount is different

Ok, I bet those are Super Rare !
In ALL the years I have been collecting Whelen Lights, I have only aquired 4 crossbar mounts. I have been outbid on 2 more on EBAY, so that would make a total of 6 that I have had the chance to aquire. I need 2 more to finish 2 bars. Such is life!
