siren mount
 
i had a guy give me a siren light combo, i would like to mount it to the roof on my 57 pontiac. So im looking to get a mount for the tapered roof of the car. it does not need to match my siren, i will build a adaptor if i need to just want to get the base to start.

Anyone have one collecting dust on their shelf my old poncho would like it???

What brand Siren / Light is it or model number. A picture is worth a lot of words, since typing 1000 words is next to impossible without repeating yourself... :wwpics:

I have a brass one for one of the smaller federals that is for a sloped roof.

It is a Federal VL 2L14 siren light combo.

While we are on the subject of it what vintage is this unit i have?

Here are a couple pics of the base and it thanks again.

The VL is the smallest motor siren that was made by Federal. They came with either a grill front (VG) or front light (VL). That siren never had a slopped roof mount to the best of my knowledge. You have to step up to a "W" series siren to get a slopped roof mounting. You could mount that VL on the fender or make a custom wedge for the roof if that is what you desire.

thats is why i was thinking if i can get a slope roof mount base i will build what i need to connect a&b together.

The siren pictured above is a W series siren, and this one is specifically a WLR. The W series sirens are a larger motor siren, and use the standard Federal 4 bolt mounting bracket. The 4 bolt mounting bracket will not work with a V series siren, since the mounting bolts are horizontal in relationship to the siren motor, and the mounting bolts on the 4 bolt base are vertical and screw into the siren from below.
