We do not hold a licence to produce any of Ford Motor Co’s logos and no keyrings listed for sale in this website shop have Ford badges which have been made by us.
The keyrings in this listing are original vintage keyrings which are around 50 years old.
Original 1960s Ford Falcon keyrings in mint condition are relatively rare items as few keyrings have survived in this condition after 50 years.
We have now received these incredible time-warp new old stock Ford Falcon keyrings which were produced in Walsall England in the 1960s !
The condition is absolutely mint even though these keyrings have been in store for over 50 years.
At that time almost all keyrings for the world’s cars were made in England – it was quite an industry.
The nickel plated vitreous enamel badges are mounted onto keyfobs in genuine leather with natural fibre stitching in white thread.
These keyrings have rather eclipsed every vintage Ford Falcon keyring which we have listed in the past and it would be very difficult if not impossible to improve on these as examples of genuine original vintage 1960s Ford Falcon keyrings which are original & correct for 1960 -1970 Ford Falcon.
Anyone with an interest in classic Ford Falcon motor cars would be strongly recommended to buy one of these whilst we have stock ( particularly at this price !) – as this could well be the very last ‘cache’ of original mint condition vintage Ford Falcon keyrings which will ever come to light.
The keyrings are available in 5 leather colours ( while we have stock ) – red, royal blue, tan, black & conker brown- which can be selected on the drop down menu in the listing.
These keyrings were made in Walsall, England by Heath Machin & Co who ( as well as making their own keyrings ) mounted keyfob badges onto leather keyfobs for other badgemakers including Melsom Products Ltd of Birmingham .
The badges have the name ‘Smartset’ cast onto the back of the badges – not a name which we have come across before and we can only assume that Heath Machin & Co. mounted these badges onto leather keyfobs for ‘Smartset’ – whoever they were.
Heath Machin & Co. were bought out by new owners in the very early 1970s and continued making small leather goods into the 1990s.
