I am restoring a Bel Air as a replica patrol car for my former agency.
I need a pair of blue domes for the Federal 14's. I have a clear set to swap. I'll pay postage both ways. They're in good shape.
OR
I'll buy a pair of blues if anyone has a set.
Thanks
Kev

Kevin....Check www.rescuemarket.com in Elyria, Ohio. The guys name is Gary Cahill, I've done some business with him. He's a pretty straight shooter.

When did Florida go from red lenses to blue lenses? You might already have what you need. You didn't mention the year of the Bel Air, but most police cars were Biscayne's............. especially in Biscayne Florida....:D

Paul it's a 70 Bel Air. Wasn't a police car but will be sometime this week after it gets painted green and white. We used the federal light bar back then with blue domes and the ugly siren speaker in the middle. Joe DiCorpo donated said siren speaker for the project. When I was hired in the 80's we had clear domes with Fed 184's. Bulbs: clear, blue, red, blue. Guys cut a one inch slice from a garden hose and posted it on the spindle. It made the lights move twice as fast. We had gone away from the light bars of the late 70's because of gas milage. It's also when we went to propane for fuel (lasted until about 2000).
