Chevrolet Caprice – original 1960s ‘Craftsman’ enamel badge remounted onto a new leather keyfob


2 in stock


Original Chevrolet Caprice keyfob badges which will have been produced in the 1960s which we have remounted onto new leather keyfobs as can be seen in the photos.

Just 2 keyrings left – when these keyrings have been sold this listing will be cancelled.

We have just 4 of these original Chevrolet Caprice keyfob badges to offer mounted onto our slimline teardrop keyfobs in full grain black leather as can be seen in the photos.

The vitreous enamel badges are original vintage items dating from the 1960s and are in mint condition.

The badges were made at the time by a firm known as ‘Craftsman’ who were originally Castles Unit Developments of Church Gate, Leicester England.

In the early 1960s almost all automotive keyrings and keyfob badges for the world’s cars were produced in England – it was quite an industry.

No records survive – but it is thought that Castles ( the famous CUD keyring Co. ) later became Craftsman and an American connection has always been rumoured but so far not substantiated.

Possibly Craftsman produced keyrings for American cars like Caprice in USA.

These badges were originally supplied mounted onto torpedo keyfobs ( the torpedo keyfob was Castle’s signature keyfob shape – and likely the reason for their swift demise )

The torpedo keyfob did not hang well from the ignition key when in use in most cars.

The splitring was at ninety degrees to the keyfob itself which meant that the keyfob and badge did not lay flat in use like conventional keyfobs as we know them today.

So – here is an original badge now mounted onto a new leather keyfob which will hang correctly in use.

This badge is original & correct for any 1965 onwards Chevrolet Caprice.

When all 4 keyrings have been sold this listing will cancel.
