I have no connection to this item, but I thought it was neat how they made a "play" of the word "FORD" with "4rd"
Now that's funny!
Really like that way to get around trademarks
Remember the 'Bool' or 'Fool' Ford fake Model A hubcaps?
Nice, But I bet it's made out of Unobtainium!
It is phoney baloney. The seller is a known BS artist of the highest caliber. Buyer beware!
A Phinney-Walker 4rd Special.
I found one advertisement in the Automobile Trade Journal searching Google books but unfortunately the full cannot be viewed.

Seller is Arnold Levin. Be very careful!
About 40 years ago, I saw several clocks and speedometers done that way. Someone was doing that at that time, and most people knew it was a joke. Even Vic Sala had one on one of his Ts, I think it was the '15 touring car. Even he told me it wasn't anything original.
I never bid on ANYTHING that seller lists for sale.
But that is my opinion.
That's listed by Arnold Levin in Chicago. For years his father bought early car stuff under the name of Ogden Truck Sales in the old small Hemmings.
Arnold has been selling this stuff for years and must have a huge warehouse of stuff. If you follow him on Ebay most of his stuff is overpriced and does not sell.
Judging by the stuff he does sell, especially his music boxes and high end auto parts, he easily is making well over 20k a month or more. Id like to be doing that type of income.
He has a 13,640 sales number with 100% positive feedback rating. His stuff is too pricy for me but he must be doing something right ...
Yeah Donnie, 13,000 Plus in BEANIE BABIES sales!
