Westinghouse Mercury Master MFB-10 Floodlight

I found this monster at a race track that a friend and I went to today ! It's non-functional. These were originally either 700 or 1000w MV this appears to have a 400w lamp in it. This whole facility is lit mostly by "vintage fixtures" along with this there are 3 or 4 GE PF-400 Power floods(400w MV) approx. 6 GE PF 1000 Power floods (1000w MH), approx. 6 Sylvania "Bat Wing" floods (1000w MH) along with several dozen modern Sportslighter lights AND 1 lone 250w SBMV Flood light!

A trip down memory lane no doubt...I haven't seen one of these since the late 80's.

The truth of a matter, is not determined by how many people believe it.

If it’s not being used they are indirectly telling you that you need to salvage/ rescue it.

I'm gonna call them sometime and ask about the possibility of getting it. I always thought these were cool looking !

@ WestinghouseCeramalux : there's a seller on eBay right here in Ohio that has 4 of these that are N.O.S. IN THE BOXES! without ballasts (they had to be ordered separately from Westinghouse back in the day). Only problem is they want RIDICULOUS MONEY FOR THEM ($600 each!)

I'd LOVE to get this ! The problem is the race track is in Ft Wayne Indiana BUT, the owner of the property (different from those who were running the track) is apparently somewhere in Colorado and the light is way behind a 10ft tall , locked , chain link fence . This track first opened way back in 1964 !
