Corey et al,
I bought a brand new B roadster in `1976.  On one occasion I took it to a
dealer in a diffent part of town for one of it's regular scheduled warranty
service checks.  While kicking around waiting to pick it up I wandered
through the show room.  There, under some dramatic lighting was a Jubilee
edition, brand new.  It was a BRG roadster with gold trim, badges and, If I
remeber correctly a different steering wheel.  I can't remeber the wheels at
all but I'm pretty sure they weren't regular rostyles.  
Like you said they are (or were) around but not many, I don't think I've
ever seen another one.
