Vintage sealed beam lamp housing. The lights, affectionately known as "Tin Cans" - "Can Lights" & "Mickey Mouse ears" were TRIO Sales, Model #T-2 Class A-1 lamps, manufactured for the LAPD out of the Los Angeles, California up to 1979 when the LAPD changed its lighting standard to blue and red light bars. The lights were configured with a steady red lamp in the front section, and an amber bulb that had a flash attachment in the housing. Some departments ran the flashers in unison, and in a "wig-wag pattern. The LAPD being frugal, had each lamp installed with its own independent flasher, so each light flashed in a funky pattern independent of each other. Now a collector's item, the lamps are still around, and can be purchased on occasion, t are still a few left over from 20-plus years of storage. Have no idea why it was painted yellow.
