I can take some interior pictures here this week. I do not have a cot, but I do have the cot brackets
It appears that the Beacon Ray mount and skirt are proper for the car. However somebody replaced the guts with that little strobe light. All you really need is the guts for a Beacon Ray, a 17,or 173 would fit tight in that dome (appears to be a "small" dome). Pop it off the car, remove the skirt and dome, put the mounting hardware on the new guts, reassemble and there you have it. Good as new!!! If it's a "big dome" light any guts will work 17, 173, 174, 175. or 176.

OH HELL NO! That is not original, that is a hot mess. You are missing the bottom ring molding. D-Captain had some for sale Jerry Jacobson can hook you up with him. Cots tend to be expensive and the prices are going up all the time. It's a shame you are clear out there in Oklahoma I think I have two or three model 30's in my storage garage. I have a 174 on my Pontiac combination. Rather than rotate the light swings back and forth like a washing machine agitator.

you have no Ida what is original on the car or were that lash up came from. so for right now just pull the tag off the skirt and watch e-bay for one missing the globe. the repair kit with the necessary rubber parts is available there also. if you wait and watch one will pop up with a rough skirt and a broken globe that you can get reasonable. they are not to bad to work on. but if you want. send me yours and I can rebuild you a working demount-able one. if your interested pm me.

that top looks good
