General Electric Searchlight
Model  1942A

I picked this light up with the help of my friend John on on Sunday, Oct 28th 2001. I thought I would put up a few photos to give an idea of what condtion the light is in before I started my restoration.  The light seemed to be complete except it was missing the Dynamotor, hubcaps, and a few other minor parts, and some used for the remote control system used in W.W.II.

Enjoy this quick picture tour of my GE Searchlight before restoration......
