Have not had an opportunity to put them up on the roof to check. The car is several miles away in the shop. You may remember the photo of the sorry looking car being driven away on the flatbed tow truck a few weeks ago.

Looking at the contour of the base, I'm pretty sure the back lights will be OK. Not as sure about the front.

Time to revive this old thread, and possibly get some additional information. Please post pictures of the lights with the casting numbers on the base, along with the year of application and body style. Here is a picture of a 1970 Miller Meteor with fender mounted Ful Vue lights. I would say that this was a rather rare option, since this is the only picture that I have seen to date. I would love to know the casting number of this unit. Anyone have one?

No casting numbers, but here's one with the lights on the hood:

Default Ful Vu/Miller-Meteor light motors

FYI. The model 305 M-M Ful Vu light motor as pictured in this thread is availible for those of you that want new motors. After seeing the info on this thread I stopped by the shop today. The guy at the counter gave me a price of $24 per motor. He does not have many and when they are gone they are gone. I think these would fit well into a USPS flat rate box. I am guessing the total cost with shipping would be in the area of $35 per motor. The gears on the motors he has may not be the same gear as what is on your present motor. Baader Brown does not make the plastic gears. He does not have a current supplier for them.
PM me if you are interested in new Ful Vu motors.
Mike

Default 69 - 70 m+m

Yes there is no difference in the 69/70. I drove and worked out of both years and cars. They were identical roof lines in the 48" ambulance. 70 marked the first year for the lifeliner. There were not many built.

Someone confirmed to me that the Honeywell Grimes part number for the Ful Vu lens is G-6966.

I did a search, and found a source that indicates they have some in stock.

Before you jump for joy, the price is $2190.10. Each.

I paid less than that for my whole ambulance, with 4 of them.

That is the correct part number, and if I could get half of that, my retirement fund would be fully funded for another decade. About 10 years ago, I hunted down all that were NOS and reasonably priced.
