1930's GM spotlight or safetylight

Can anyone tell me what GM vehicles and years this spotlight will fit? It looks similar to the one listed as an accessory for the 1936 Chevy, but the 36 Chevy spotlight says S1 on the id tag and is called a sportlite I believe.

On the tag of this one: GM SAFETYLIGHT

Patent numbers: 1497896--1702722--1913075--1940348

It uses a number 1133 bulb with a unique looking metal reflecting cover over the bulb. It is approximately 18" in length, including the handle. There is a toggle switch for the light and some sort of arm sticking up (can see in picture number 3) that I'm not sure what it does. The bakelite knob twists to rotate the lamp.

Here are links to some pictures:

Safetylight 4

Thanks for any help!

Thanks very much for the information and the link! I don't have my 1936 Chevy Accessories book handy, so didn't recall exactly.

If anyone is interested, I do want to sell this spotlight. If so, send me a PM and we can discuss. Later on I might list in the Buy/Sell forum.
