Default Ful Vue Light Casting Numbers

These are the casting part numbers that I took from the Ful Vue lights that are mounted on my 1969 Miller Meteor 48" Classic (later called Volunteer).. I would assume that the 1970 is identical roof line.

350-655224 - Right Front
350-655225 - Left Front
350-655226 - Left Rear
350-655227 - Right Rear

I have since learned that only the front lights had the label on them, and that Miller Meteor wasn't very consistant in installing these labels either. I got this information from Tom Caserta at the Picqua meet in 2010. He also told me that the bases were cast "in house".

The four that I just acquired are:

Front Right: 350-715252
Front Left: 350-715253
Rear Right: 350-715250
Rear Left: 350-715251

The two front ones have the name plates. These 4 lights were original equipment on a Criterion.

The mechanism is different in the the various lights. Three have plastic frames for the motor and gears, one has a metal frame. I'll try to attach photos to show the difference.

Does anyone know if extra lens are easier to find than the lights? One of mine has a crack, the others are in good shape.

You can tell by the pictures that these two lights are from different vintages. One has a metal horseshoe bracket that doesn't require a ground, and what looks like a metal gear, and the other is a polycarbonate horseshoe bracket that requires a grounding attachment part. This would indicate to me that these two light numbers were used across a bunch of production years. What year and model ambulance are you planning on using these lights on?

Don't know if your roof line is different than my 1969, however, here is a picture for comparison. The lights you purchased have a different casting number on them then the lights that I removed from my 1969 for the roof restoration. Have you place them on the roof to see how they fit the contour? Hard to believe that this is the same car in the 3 pictures that I took last year, and the one in front of the City Hall on the day that they took it out of service. The "thermometer" in the background of the car shows how much money was raised for the purchase of the new box type ambulance that they had purchased. It is a shame that it sat outside weathering for 10 years before I purchased it. The man that I bought it from got the car from his brother who bought it at the county auction with another person that later died. I never did find out what their original thoughts were for the car, however, it remained unmolested all those years. Even the studded snow tires were still on it when I got it delivered.
