Made by the American Silversmiths Guild in 1977 the 75th anniversary of Ford Motor Company.
"Meticulously hand-crafted by master silversmith, each model will weight approximately eight pounds, and will contain more than 40,000 grains of sterling Silver and a full fifteen grams of pure gold.
The world renowned jewelers, Cartier of New York, London and Paris, have been commissioned to set flawless, full cut diamonds in both front headlamps, as well as a deep ruby in the rear lantern. The model will be limited to 1,708 examples only, the exact number of original Model A's produced by Ford Motor Company.
Each model will be accompanied by accustom display case, produced in solid walnut, featuring a roadbed of genuine, turn-of-the century cobblestone actually taken from the streets of America's great cities. This "Model A" includes the original display case, complete documentation and certificates of authenticity.
Only Ford dealers could order and purchase these rare models. Because of the very limited production they were sold out and not all the orders were filled.
immediately reminded me of the dozer model http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2015/12/caterpillar-sixty-silver-and-gold.html
