Never seen a 6 lamp magnetic fixture with a single ballast.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

No, this fixture would have 2 three-lamp magnetic ballasts or 3 two-lamp magnetic ballasts.

Power provider: Southern California Edison (SCE)

-Date decoder of some US lamps 1960-present.
-Switch and receptacle collector.
-I'll save what I can! Smiley

What ballasts does this have?

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

Fluorescent 05 ,

I don’t know - I know it’s crazy but I’ve never even fired her up ,

I’ll open it up soon so You can take a look,

Most of my lights I use for display only , This is why I don’t know what types of ballast they have ,

My only interest right now is rescuing them and bringing them home - I don’t have much time if any to mess with them - I do remember a time when I did , But that was a long time ago 😎
