NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered but has been left on view as an example of an original Gordon Keeble keyring
Gordon Keeble built just 99 of their beautiful Giugiaro styled coupes with Corvette V8 engines .
The cars were exquisite at the time and have not diminished in desirability over the years.
Obviously Gordon Keeble went to the very best maker of keyrings at the time in order to have a bespoke keyring made for their cars – and chose the famous Castles Unit Development Co. of Church Gate in Leicester to do the job.
Here is the proof – a torpedo keyring with Castle’s famous CUD mark on the back of the badge.
This is the only example of this keyring which we have ever seen – let alone listed- and Gordon Keeble Concessionaires Ltd details are embossed on the back of the keyfob as if the badge is not enough !
The vitreous enamel badge is in excellent condition whilst the leather keyfob is quite serviceable but does have age – related wear as can be seen in the photos.
How many more of these original torpedo keyrings are there out there ??
Our guess would be very few.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive and is original & correct for use with 1964 – 1966 Gordon Keeble GK1.
When it has been sold this listing will cancel. 00/942 11/20
