    I have 5 of then, no they are not for sale, I have 3 of them on my 37 cars. Often see them at Hershey for steep prices in poor condition. The cost to have them plated is expensive.
    And yes they are vacuum operated. Ron Liski, who flys radio control model airplanes, has developed a way to electrify them using radio control technology.

      Ok, I give up. I even googled it and didn't find a definitive answer.
      What is a "wig wag"?

        I can't help it...you guys often present us with "low hanging fruit"...but wig wag probably means different things to different people...when technology finally allows us to look into each others imaging thoughts...a wig wag in your girlfriend's mind might look entirely different to your concept!

        The first Studebaker wig-wag I saw was on Bob Yale's '37 Coupe Express!

        Then there's the female looking creatures of San Fransisco with a wig wag!

          Google is becoming a lost art, I guess.

            google is becoming a lost art....used to be you could find information on a variety of things quickly.....now you have to sift thru a ton of advertising type links in order to find actual information.

                Not so much is Google a lost art...when people post information about obscure parts or information...they NEED to provide just a LITTLE...information..!
                People have other things going on than to search for something that SHOULD have been provided by the original poster.

                I for one attempt to do this...ain't that difficult.

                            I have 7 Wig Wags. The ad posted by Bob in response #5 above was "borrowed" from the one I posted here a few years ago. I have all the original documentation on this accessory (AC-370) including original installation instructions. 5 pages of patent information etc. See images below.
