Original Vintage & Restored Leather Keyrings for Classic Cars & Motorcycles


Hudson – original vintage 1950s? keychain – collector’s item

NOW SOLD – sorry this keyring has now been sold but has been left on view as an example of an ultra rare Hudson keyring .

An original Hudson keychain which we would think will have been produced in the 1950s or shortly afterwards .

We have just this one example of this keychain to offer – when this keyring has been sold this listing will be cancelled .

This is the only example of a completely original & intact Hudson keychain which we have ever seen & listed .

All that we have previously listed for Hudson were a couple of keyfob badges which we had remounted onto new leather keyfobs .

Hardly surprising that not many keychains or keyrings exist as the final Hudson car came off the assembly line on June 25th 1957 – before car keychains & keyrings were in general use .

This keychain is in superb condition and is probably new old stock having never been used .

The badge appears to have been produced in red coach enamel rather than vitreous enamel .

It is inlaid into a keyfob in green ‘ mock croc ‘ faux leather imitating crocodile skin .

The keyfob is connected to the key clasp by means of a gilt plated snake chain .

The keyclasp opens and shuts as it should to allow key(s) to be fitted .

Almost certainly produced in USA – which is where we received it from .

The keychain in the photos is the actual one which you will receive. SMOSO  00/59   05/24
