That's an AEL 327-X1V. Big too. 3'-2" long. More than half my height. I am 6'-2" in height.

Why I like LEDs on top of other lighting tech?
LEDs = Upgrade 95% of the applications. (That is if you avoid eBay's LEDs).


LED brainwash? No, people uses them cuz they work well for them.

It looked a little like an AEL so I went to their site. I scrolled down and found the 327 on the roadway page.

Might be older as I see a few differences. The newer 327 have the leveling disk on the door and the latch is out in the open instead of recessed a little on this one. Ur right its not a 327 but sure is AE.

Yes I verified it was an AE from the front view, the front view helped me, It is an AE in a 327 size......however I do not know the number.....yet..if I was using an edcuated logical guess it could be AE 17-000? The other 2 older fixtures are AE 13-000 (Picture taken by me a BGE light at Rt. 1 near Joppa Rd) and AE 15-000 (picture by Dave D. a SCE owned light) ....there are more than one differences...this one above also has rounded top than boxy top....also refractor shape and the insides too! This one above for sure is from the 1960s! I had an AE 13-000 (named Old AE in my webpage, which needs to be upgraded...)

This one does look similar to a Revere though I have seen a few slight differences versions of Reveres, with the front view said it all, the latch design was an AE, making this an AE!

The design of the latch is a giveaway that it's an AEL.

I have taken a look on Google Maps and found this rare streetlight in Barcelona, Spain on a couple of streets. There are even a few of them that have fins. I also saw a couple of the pre 13s as well in that city attached to the back of the pre 327s. They are used to light the sidewalks

This is an American Electric Series 17-000. This model predates the Series 327. The Series 13-000 was for 100, 175, and 250W lamps (later renamed the Series 13), the 15-000 was for 400W lamps (later renamed the Series 25), and this was for 700 and 1000W lamps.

Definitely not a 327-X1V. Where the hell did that even come from, Felipe?

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

When I had a chance to do a early AM night scene in Dedham, I was really wrong. The bulb in it is actually High Pressure Sodium. I never thought it'd be retrofitted for High Pressure Sodium.
