We do not have a licence to produce any of the Ford logos and no Ford badges on keyrings listed for sale in this website shop have been made by us.
This particular keyring is an original item which is around 50 years old.
Just one Ford Torino torpedo keyring left – when that one has been sold this listing will be cancelled
We have just 3 of these original new old stock torpedo keyrings which were made by Craftsman in the late 1960s.
The keyrings are new old stock – so are in mint condition.
The vitreous enamel badges are mounted onto genuine leather torpedo keyfobs gold embossed ‘ Real Morocco Made in England’
Morocco was a term used for goatskin – and the fine pebbly appearance of the leather suggests that this is indeed goatskin.
Torpedo keyrings were made by Castles Unit Developments of Castle Gate Leicester UK in the early 1960s. They were the only manufacturer making torpedos.
It is believed that Castles then changed their name very briefly to ‘Craftsman’ before ceasing production altogether. We do very occasionally come across torpedo keyrings marked ‘Craftsman’. An American connection has also been rumoured but so far has not substantiated.
These keyrings were actually sourced from USA together with other new old stock torpedo keyrings made by Craftsman.
Morocco leather is more an American term than a British one – even though the keyfob is gold embossed ‘Made In England’.
The keyrings are original & correct for 1968 -1976 Ford Torino.
How many of those cars which remain will be driven with an original keyring from the time like this one ?
When all 3 keyrings have been sold this listing will cancel.
