I've always wanted to find an NOS Westinghouse cobra-head...never did I think that it would be in my favorite model, with my favorite wattage in mercury vapor!

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

I was going to blow my budget and buy it but I have other things I want to buy right now. Plus I have the NOS OV-400 so at least another collector got a chance at an NOS Westinghouse luminaire.

Very nice! I love the flawless hammertone finish. Sometime around or shortly before switching to the boxy ov15s I believe they went to a non-textured silver paint.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.

Yes they did, but the new paint also had a bronze overtone.

Very nice, love the finish too. The later Westinghouse lights were tended to be bare aluminium so I don't think I've seen many of painted ones like this around.

Was that a Canadian thing to leave them bare? I never saw that here in the US, except where the elements removed the paint from the top housing. (My oldest 250W/H37 OV-15 that I have pictured here was that way when I got it.)

I think it was. Even the newer AEL and Cooper luminaires tended to be bare. The GE luminaires installed here have always been painted though.
