What to use?

Finishing up this great Superior I got from Brian Schuff, originally from Drumheller and later at Ringdahl's (I think). From original photos, I think it had a twinsonic on the roof. Later photos had a mini lightbar above the sign. The twinsonic could work, but two beacons with some chrome sirens might be nice, too. Maybe a Mars in the middle above the sign. Any thoughts?

Jim, here are a couple of before and after shots of the '79 Superior that I once owned. It was originally purchased new by the Winkler, Manitoba Fire Dept. After I became the second owner, I eventually added a pair of CP 25 siren speakers and a Mars 888 light. I would have liked to get rid of the Code 3 light bar in favor of a pair of Federal 184 beacons, but never got around to it.

I think you are on the right track on what you are considering for yours.

Me i would go with the 184 the flat top would go best. The siren light is a lot taller.

This is my 1978 Superior Transport the way that it was originally delivered to Stettler Hospital, Stettler, AB T0C 2L0, Canada when new. If I were to add anything to it, it might be either a Mars 888 between the Federal CP25 sirens, or possibly a Federal C6B. It is a matter of personal taste, so you can do anything that you like, since it is your car.

Probably something in this bunch would work? Have not sorted thru it all yet.

My vote would be much as already described. I would have a single clear dome 184, lined up at the level of the side scene lights, and twin CP25's with a MARS 888 as applied by Terry.

For sure Jim, it will look great!
