Jerry Fretwell had at least one -- I think ElwoodGruff bought it. But get in touch with Jerry. He may very well have others.

I bought the Engel that Jerry had. There's a 50s Kay on Craiglist that I looked at in Raleigh NC and I was very interested in, but I didn't want to pay the price he wanted without having someone who knows much more about possible strucutral issues than I do look at it.

ElwoodGruff It is still there, http://raleigh.craigslist.org/msg/1911240811.html but that is a bit high of a price. my son lives in Raleigh so I am going to have him go check it out. I just missed one on Ebay that was in Columbus that whet for 350.00 i wasn't looking at that time. I really need one for practice. the two hour drive would be nicer if I could drive my car instead of our SUV.
