I have the unit number, but not sure on the troop yet. Guess I need to try and find that out! I actually have two of these cars right now, one has been repainted black, but the other one is completely original, still has the black spray paint over the tan from the auction.
Pimp, I'll back your post up. The FHP did use single head Dashmasters on the Mustang rear decks at one time, and as I recall it was in the mid to late 80s, but obviously they must have changed to the Federals at some point.
FHPSSP, that eBay seller often sells different types of lighting, plus his auction says he has more lights available, so just ask. He is in Florida too, so that's a bonus for you on getting cheaper shipping or going to see him personally if he is fairly close to you. Give him a shout, it can't hurt, and he might have some extras you can get cheap.
And cajunblitz, please don't file 13 anything, especially NOS stuff. That's such a waste and makes many of us on the board ill just to think about it. If you have some lighting related things you don't want anymore, just throw them in a box and I'll make a trip down there to get them in exchange for covering your lunch, breakfast, snack, or whatever.....
I guess it's time for me to throw my two cents in.I have a genuine! (not repro from a collector) FHP Jetsonic that still has the property tag on the inside from the DHSMV(Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles).I also know two generations of Troopers(grandfather & grandson) and five different current troopers.Just wanted to say that to qualify that I know what I'm talking about.As far as deck lights for Crown Vic,Caprice,Mustangs,etc.,FHP used Whelen single Dashmasters,early Federal Signal single strobes that were made by Tomar,as already stated the Federal Signal Director single series lights,etc.Troopers were pretty well free to put whatever lights they wanted in their personal cars.I've seen in-service pics of the above named car models with Whelen Dual Dashmasters and SVP pancake lights on the dash,as well as blue and red Dashmasters mounted to the headliner in mustangs of the time,and that was twenty plus years before they officialy went to red and blue!Also,the sirens used in the cars where Federal Signal PA-300 or Whelen WS-295. And no,the authentic Jetsonic is not for sale,as they are to rare.I have not seen another one,on the internet or elsewhere.
Lightbar, nice info. I think the Jet I have is genuine too, it shipped from Florida and it has the residue on one of the mirrors from a DHSMV property tag, you can still partially read it. I'm glad you replied, however, I'd love to pick your brain for any restoration details for the FHP mustangs that's not already common knowledge, or for any in-service pics not already on the websites. Also, for what it's worth, I'd love to find any accessories for restoration purposes that are period specific, such as first aid kits, stick-on calendars (may settle for a current one), radio code legend (that went on the visor), "cowboy" hat, jacket, and any other item that may have been used around 1992.
