|Radatron Inc Radar Sentry & Driver Alert Radar Detectors
This are early Radar Detectors from the early 60's. They take two AA batteries and clips to the sun visor. I also have the phamplet that came with the Radar Sentry detector. These detectors came out right around 1961 so it goes along great with my Comet. Not that it can break any speed limits!

This is a decal give to drivers by the National Protective Life Insurance Company. You stuck it on your windshield and on the back it says that the company would pay for any medical attention the driver needed no matter what vehical they were in. I guess you had to take the doctor out to the car to read this!
