Surprised this is still available, considering bidding myself so as to have one for the house and one for the garage. I missed a couple over probably 20 years because I set my bid limit at $100. Finally threw a stupid bid at one and got it for just over a bill.  

Hope someone here buys it so I don’t have to explain “Don’t you already have one of those” when it arrives

Good Luck!!! Will fit in well in your office.   I was wondering if the $82 BIN would go away if a bid got placed on it.

From what I was told by an old dealership owner I met at a camp ground, they were given out to salesmen as sales rewards. Would love to hear what you know of it though  @GillyWI

Yeah, that's what a dealership owner would remember alright, LOL. always coddling his salesmen.

They are "Service Master" awards. I got mine in 1986, as I believe all of them would have been. The year prior we got a pewter '53 Skylark. I will attach an image of that as well.

The weird part is for some odd reason I still have the box and letter that accompanied the plaque. am attaching pics of the box and letter as provenance to my statement.

The base for the Skylark seems to be highly laquered wood. The Lark has a serial number, I could not find numbering on the plaque. Again I believe the Lark was a year prior to the plaque.

I was employed at the dealer on the shipping label from 1982 til about 1989-90. I don't remember any other awards like these 2.

I have one of those pewter cars.  Neat piece that went to the service manager or service tech in the mid 80's.  Very much a quality piece.

I have a couple of those pewter cars as well.

# 7901 is in very good condition as found 

# 9996 was found missing the windshield (and remains unrestored)

 

Anyone know how many were distributed?
