Yes, and I had a hard time with the price. I know that these are going to become impossible to find in the future, so I bit and spent some $$$$.
This luminaire looks as if it came off the assembly line today, not 50 years ago. And to top if off, all of the fasteners are stainless steel, which I think is just sweet.

Your mission - should you choose to except it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

Is that from the seller that had a ton of these all in one box units for sale? Because I saw those, but the price was really high I thought. But that is a very nice setup there.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

No, but I received this lamp about the same time as the luminaire, and thought that they looked good together.
(This fixture was originally sold without a lamp, but I received it with a less than non-top tier lamp.)

Ok cool. 1978 would be too late for that refractor style.

A/E Package "B" dated around 1967 with American Electric Model 8060 photo control. Manufactured at first American Electric plant in Southaven, Ms. Plant is now just an A/E warehouse distribution center.
