I will chime in my two bits and back Ed's and Steve's thoughts. For your car a 174 or 175 would be my choice, both in ease to work with and likely the appearance for the car of the day.

I was wrong about having a 174 I have a 176. What would be the difference between the 174 and a 176?

here is the problem with the 184 not only the size but as Steve said there is not a lot of skirt to trim.

David, you can make a demountable but you definitely need a 184H to have enough skirt to trim as Steve mentioned above. They're harder to find than a regular 184 but they're out there. I found one and made it demountable for my '75 Miller-Meteor with a M-M demountable adapter, which is the same one under a demountable Beacon Ray.

A 174 oscillates 95 degrees, while a 176 rotates 360.

thanks Steve, I get them mixed up. I never was able to find a 174 at a reasonable price. but the point was if your going to be taking it off and putting it on, the smaller 4 bulb light is a better choice.

but if it's flashes per second I would say the 174 has more then the 176.
