It's hard to tell from the picture, but it is indeed a deluxe lamp.

I think these fixtures are hard to relamp.

It's actually rather easy. You only have to remove 4, 1/4-20 screws (which are held captive in the cover) and pull the cover back (which is held in place by a metal tab), reach in and re-lamp.

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

Yeah they're a pain if you don't have easy access to the back of the fixture. But I would rather relamp it from the top than open a door on the front/bottom and have all the dead bugs and crap inside the light falling on my face while I reach up to unscrew the lamp lol. The original version from the 1960s had a cover on top that you removed. The "hatch back" version came about sometime in the 70s. I have one from 1978, a 400W MV.
