We just pulled these out of my office for a remodel. They are 1950s-60s, two different styles. Some have one bad ballast, some have both good.

Nice saves!
Rare to see a 4xF96

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

Definitely keep them! Very unusual fixtures. I have a few, but only got them because they are rare.

Preheat Fluorescents forever!
I love diesel engines, rural/farm life and vintage lighting!

Nice fixtures!

Pride and quality workmanship should lie behind manufacturing, not greed.

Nice fixtures! Spags in mass had hundreds of these recently torn down never made in Time to save them

T12/ t17 there's a reason they made heavy magnetic ballasts

Back when we took these down, we let one of the employees have them for an auto repair workshop. I don't know if he's put them up yet. My aunt's neighborhood (Queens/New York City) in the 80s had many stores lit with 4-lamp slimlines. I think there were even 4-lamp HO or VHO fixtures over the entrances to the stores (it gets cold in winter). I haven't been there in a long time, no idea if they're still there.
