NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
This is the only example of this keyring which we have ever seen and assume that not many were made and that they are no longer available.
A heavy item beautifully made in the style of a knock-on wheel hub with B-M-W in typical 1950s font.
Obviously produced by BMW to commemorate the BMW 507 Roadster which was conceived by Max Hoffman – the charismatic USA importer of German cars in the 1950s.
Only 252 V8 engine cars were produced between 1956 & 1959 – Elvis Presley buying 2 of them at the time.
Producing the car was one of the factors which almost brought BMW to it’s knees at the time .
The keyring is in mint condition and still in it’s original presentation box as can be seen in the photos.
The fact that the box is devoid of bar codes or BMW website addresses suggests to us that the item dates from the early 2000’s.
Certainly an item not to be missed by the serious BMW collector.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled. 00/59 11/20
