I've been looking for a Commander for years without success. I've never even seen one in real life, but I have some Whelen ads in my collection that show them. I don't know what years they were offered, but am guessing there weren't many sold.

While Federal's Super oscillated 95 degrees, the Whelen version oscillated 205:

Steve,
Sireno also made a four bulb wig-wag light. This one only traveled 110 degrees though. It was the model 194, Revolvo-Ray. I have one that is restored that I would be willing to part with for an interesting trade or some ridiculous amount of cash.

There was a white '68 M-M at the '89 PCS meet in Gaithersburg that had one of these on it.
