Dad collected accessories for cars and he wound display them all over the house but this one was wraped in news paper from 1948. Cheers Colin
Wow!! That one is "owl" right !!!
I'd love to see that work. I'm guessing green means go and red means shut 'er down ?? wondering why green on the back only ??
George, the owl has one red eye and one green eye. I think that follows nautical running lights. The driver sees the usual motometer gauge from the rear, the light would make it so the temp would be visible if it reaches "overheated" in the circle.
That great. Wish it was on my 26 rpu..
The two eyes are green the red part is at the sides the bulb inside is right at the circle of the meter, and I believe this to be the smallest of the motor meters at 2.25 inches wide. It is all nickel plated. cheers Colin
Ha ha, Colin thanks for correcting my error. I must be red-green color blind. What a wonderful item ! Thanks for showing us.
It would be are real hoo't to install that one. But you could only drive at night or at dusk! LOL
