1/20 scale Henney-Packard ambulance model from 1951

Here is a link to a post describing the history of the AMT Corporation, the famous manufacturer of dealer promo models and plastic kits, that mentions an assembled toy/model with a clockwork motor:

The first image in the post shows a circa 1951 flyer for the Henney model. From the article, "In 1951, AMT produced an authentic model of a Henney-Packard ambulance in 1/20th scale. This model was not very popular among the young kids at the time and through 1954, AMT continued to struggle within the sales markets."

Be nice to find one of those "not very popular" $3.98 Henney models today. I'd bet it would go for about as much as a downpayment on the real thing would be.
