February 1965. Painted silver, made briefly during the mid 1960s. Very cool!

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

I really appreciate the quality, craftsmanship, & attention to detail they put into these older street lights. The new stuff is just cheap (...).

Yep...the casting is quite heavy when compared to today. This is one cool light, that's why I bought it.
Who ever had this took good care of it...there's no chips in the glass refractor!

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

Nice fixture. My very similar M-250R Crimefighter is built like a tank too. Very solid castings compared to newer street lights.

It's almost identical to the Crime-fighter. There was one for sale on eBay recently...no, didn't buy it. Hope that it went to a collector.

Nice! I have three of these (1963, 1965, 1968 IIRC). Very nice lights. They only made this particular version in 1965. The 1960-1964 version was silver with no tab on the latch. The paint on those typically "washed away" after a few years. The ones from 1966-1970 were identical to those made in 1965 except they were gray, no longer silver. The paint on the 1965 models seems to hold on really well.

I missed the bid. It went for 32.00. Mad at myself.

I want to go to Chicago & get a couple of the M-400 based “Crime-Fighters” they are unique to Chicago it would seem.

I have seen a few of the M250 crime fighters on ebay but none of the 400's.

Yeah one of the large crimefighters would be cool. Only thing about them is they only have plastic buckets and most are yellowed. You can always order a new plastic bucket though.

So, I guess this one is a limited edition?

Yeah, the M-250R based Crime Fighters seem to be a lot more common in collections that the newer one or the M-400A based ones. I wonder if they were ever made in something other than 310W HPS. It would be neat to find a MV version like the M-250R Crime Fighters.
