Default what emergency light could go here....

Now that I'm playing with the car more and more, I'm probably going to be picking your brains about little things here and there. On the roof of our 1970 Superior Caddy you can see where the round rotator light was in the center. There are 2 spear/tear drop shaped spots where there was something. A light maybe? I can't figure it out.

I've been scouring the internet and I'm thinking a Mars 888 light? Mount looks Identical.

Could be the base for a Mars 888 light, but more likely, it was a pair of Federal CP-25 speakers. Usually, the Mars 888 lights would have been mounted much lower, since they were a "traffic clearing light".

I vote with Paul and ED Federal Speakers strange location though. Too prone for low tree removal.

I agree on the Federal CP25 speakers, odd location and angle though.

I ordered one on eBay and just got it and fits perfectly on the roof. I'll probably move the other to the same spot on the other side but I just need a base for it. If someone has a new like in the pic below for sale please let me know.

Should have posted here in the wanted section, and you probably would have found both that you needed, and in all probability , for less money. Also, until you hook it up, you have no way to know if it is a working unit.

Just an FYI; 95% (99%?) of these cars that had exterior speakers had them mounted on the cab, not on the upper roof. Superior used exclusive brackets for mounting these for 1965-70 models, which can be found from time to time. These brackets have been discussed extensively in other posts on this forum.

It appears that your car also had cab mounted speakers.
