Um, just because somebody spotted something in a hardware store that resembles the Adamski craft doesn't mean it was hoaxed. No nail. No coffin.
It has been suggested that Adamski was not merely a hoaxer, but that he was in turn being hoaxed and used by Allen Dulles, CIA.
It's an interesting theory that does have some backing evidence. If that were true, maybe the "Friendship" folk were taken for a similar ride?
Good find torsion. Either that's a match or else the alien ship designers bought a gas lantern from the Sears catalog to use as a model to design their space ships. Even then it's still a match, though one might ask why the space ship needs a slot for the lantern handle? I guess Joel Carpenter is still trying to find the other components like the part attached to the top and the ping-pong balls or whatever they are glued to the bottom, etc.
...All too often people forget that these aliens are sentient beings and are actively involved with the evolution of our consciousness of them. They use the language of myth and religion, symbolism and theatre, to control what we think of them. We should never underestimate their ability to manipulate how we perceive them.
One only has to look at how the Nazi propaganda machine worked. They used a highly religious and theatrical format; The torchlit marches, the elaborate rallies, the huge banners with swasticas on them, the Norse gods, the religious fervor of Hitler's speeches, the set pieces and so on.
The Nazis used this high language of theatre and religion so seduce a whole nation. This is the language the aliens are using with humanity. UFOs in the sky are pure theater. They promote the idea that they are gods. They are here to save humanity just as Hitler would save the German nation and create the Third Reich. The aliens will save us and usher in a new world - with them as our redeemers - yes indeed, Adamski's mysticism is typical of a lot of people who contact aliens.

Not that I don't think Adamski wasn't hoaxing, but that's not really a match.
Close, though. And it suggests that the saucer might have been some kind of top for a lantern or water heater, or whatever. But realistically, it is not a match.
"realistically" it's not a match but it will be a match if you add three ping-pong balls and a little glue.
I am pretty sure that he did some "mods" to the thing to create the final UFO...and that's how it looks like.
...that the resemblance was merely a coincidence -
