Another mystery at the Travis AFB Museum,
I found this panel and I can't Identify it. 
It appears to be an overhead panel and from  4 engine aircraft. It does not seem to match anything we have in the Travis Museum. 

It has lighting controls
it has bleed values for 4 engines,
it has 4 oil cooler door controls 
water injection switch

Part numbers on the back are all in ink. No matches in the AAIR database

5515397
4587457
5515646

IF I can figure out what it is from, I may save it, or it will be disassembled for parts
Please help

Overhead control panel from a Douglas C-133.  Propeller brake switches says it's a turboprop, not a recip, part numbers reminded me of Douglas which loves to put stuff in the 500s.  The QA stamps are new to me.  Kind of Douglas-ish but also reminded me of Lockheed a bit, both made 4 engine turboprops.  Travis also hosted C-133s all through the sixties until it's retirement.

Thanks Walt
we have a match, pilot's overhead panel
The Travis Museum has a C-133 and it is not missing the panel. It must be a spare.
Yes, it is a Douglas plane, Douglas Ink stamps.
