What do you want one of those?, as I have one of those it's never been used but I won't sell the one I have as it took me over 10 years to find it. But I do know that there very rare as there's a picture of it in the the 1931 Ford news.

As I spent allot of money to get the one I have as it took me years to find one as if you read what's in the Ford News, it tells you that there were only like five or six dealers that did the contest in one state out East.

But what I don't know is if Ford sent them to all of the dealers in the U.S. or not, not even the Benson Research Center knows that one so that really could be really rare or it couldn't be rare at all.

But what I'm thinking that happened is when all of these dealers closed down those were just thrown away, as no one thought that they would be worth anything at the time.

So there might not be to many of those around these days as it took me about ten years to find one, as I thought that they were rare at that time but the guy that I bought it from is a M.A.F.C.A. judge

Or was and he said that he had it for a few years and that he thought it was rare as he didn't run into them very often, But he or I could be wrong also as no one really knows for sure if it is or not.

So if you are looking for one keep you ads posted and you might get lucky one day, but there not cheap anymore either as there's not that many of them around these days.
