This is 1 of the most Famous Trophies in Off Road Racing History, if not THE MOST SINGLE FAMOUS TROPHY in it's history. And would make a wonderful center piece for any serious collector or Museum in the World. If you are looking for something truly special for your collection, it would be tough to beat this one. When was the last time you saw something this old and historic that was associated with all these Stars and Legends?

1 Its One of a Kind and will only go up in value. In Fact, if you take everything into consideration about this Trophy I believe it's already worth much more than what I'm asking now. With annual sales of over 18 BILLION dollars annually, that's BILLION with a "B"-- in the Off-Road Industry, I feel this is a very attractive price for a relic from one of it's most historic and celebrated Championship Events.
