Yeah, they're becoming more and more rare these days. Good thing I happened to find this in Holbrook, MA. I still need to find a 1957 Westinghouse OV25 Silverliner dayburning, too. There's only 8 of them in Boston and one in Holbrook. The odds are 9 to a million.

I consider these fixtures to be the very first cobra heads, Even know the ov-25 was the first this fixture came before them and it takes on the shape as a cobrahead, I guess this is where the merge took place and the ov-25 was the birth of cobraheads and the death to clamshells.

Same stuff, Different Day!

Unfortunately, on January 15, 2011, while I was on the bus headed for Quincy, I discovered that all the GE Form 400 Powerpacks in Holbrook have been replaced by 2007 General Electric M250R2 FCOs.

Now the '07 General Electric M250R2 had been replaced by a Leotek GCM2 last year.

Reminds me of when the incandescents fell because of mercury.

Around ten years ago I saw some Canadian variants of these at a strip mall parking lot. They're long gone now unfortunately, There was a plan to save them by another LG member but I believe plans fell through due to miscommunication with the owner and they didn't saved.

The Canadian variants looked similar but had a all cast aluminum upper housing instead of a cast aluminum slipfitter/ballast casing and stamped aluminum lamp housing that one pictured here has.
