Rare or Not? Need INFO Please
While cleaning out my recently deceased grandfathers house, In one of the closets I found a box. This box contained a " 1961 Authentic Scale Model Car'. It is a Ford Thunderbird Convertable, the car and box are like brand new, the box is stamped Chesapeak Blue on the end representing the color of the car. There is a card inside the box apologizing that the original color ordered was no longer available, this was signed by the marketing Director from Ford Motor Company. I have googled every possible way and even called Ford trying to find out about this with no luck at all. The people at ford marketing told me that they have heard of these cars before but very rarely and they told me to be careful with it. Any info anyone has would be appreciated.
