On a roadsters shifter knob I saw this "Ford Rotunda" medallion... only one I've ever seen


The Ford Rotunda was built for the 1933 Worlds Fair in Chicago. After the fair closed, Ford had the Rotunda disassembled and moved to Dearborn, Michigan, where it took 18 months to rebuild on a site directly across from Ford Motor Company's Central Office Building,

 Constructed of a steel framework, over which Indiana Limestone was attached, the building resembled a stack of four gears, each decreasing in size toward the top. The Rotunda was the equivalent height of a ten story building, measured 210 feet at the base, and featured a center courtyard with a diameter of 92 feet.
