Fixtures all have 120 / 208 / 240 / 277 ballasts factory wired for 240.  55 and 90 watt have a factory mount for a standard PC socket but are not equipped with one (I do have some extra sockets I pulled off damaged 135 watters). 135 watts have a socket with a shorting cap that was field bypassed. The condition: they are what they are, I will be providing individual photos. They spent their service life subject to salt spray from passing trucks, but they light. Shipped cost will be under $133 for sure. I'm thinking of going with the $35-$50 figure someone suggested since that figure was kind of in the back of my mind before, and shipping would be about $25-$50 depending on how far you are from Minneapolis.

That sounds good, I can make a hole for PC socket, and I can rewire for 120v. BTW I`m in North Carolina.

Another idea is you could set up a bid post with a cut off date.

Sounds like a good plan to sell these. I may be interested in one of these fixtures soon. I would prefer it to be in fair condition, but as long as the refractor/glass is not broken and all of the components work its fine. I can get a SOX lamp, because I dont have any right now.

I am definitely interested in a 55 watt one.  If it includes a lamp, even better!
