Remote control bow spotlight

Post by dsolaro »

I have come across a Sparton manual remote control bow searchlight possibly from the 60's. The seller wants $100 and I really do not have a need for it, but you all know.... Does anyone happen to know a fair value? I would add a picture, but my I-pad will not allow me. Any help on a value will be appreciated. Thank you

I have one of those that came with my Capri. They were very popular in the 50's. If it what I think it is, it operates off a cam hooked to a cable. You will need to check whether it is 6volt of 12 volt. In either case it is worth a lot more than $100. Mine is pristine condition and valued at several hundred. But value is the eye of the beholder

Thanks. This one is 12v in the box. It is in new condition and has what appears to be all the parts.

Worth every penny of it. Mine is 6 volt and will change out the wiring and bulb to 12 volt before it gets remounted.
