Can anyone help with identifying this vintage spotlight?
Thanks for your help!
Some parts look Unity-like ...
Where are you ? How was it found ?
We need to go back to doing intros ...
I am located in Switzerland, it was collected from an autojumble some 30 years ago.
If you say some parts are Unity, does this imply it was made out of parts of different manufacturers?
Hi ... the thru-door type mount and the handle resemble Guide and Unity, but probably aren't. Guessing the light is not going to be a US made item, and was sold as pictured, but not in the US unless by Arnolt or one of the foreign car acc. dealers.
As it was an autojumble in the US, think it must be US origin. I am not aware of any European manufatures of this kind of spotlights...
Might be a"bitsa", as already indicated.
Main thing about spotlights is the shaft length and the mounting kit. Sold a ton of in my old line of work

Have you ever had it apart? I've seen the aluminum handle before but didn't know the brand. The light unit, sealed beam or bulb? If it's a bulb the name may be stamped on the edge of the reflector, might even be stamped in ink inside the shell, or one other place, along the ridge that holds the crome bezel and lighting stuff to the shell. Again, the aluminum handle seems familiar but...
Handle has Alu paint!
Possibly start with the logo on the center medallion on the bulb?
