The story of early post-World War II Jaguar key fobs, forgotten for more than a half century, seemed wrapped in an impenetrable mist and was only recently exposed by a dedicated researcher and Jaguar enthusiast. Bud Marston’s book reveals the story of the origins and heritage of more than three hundred splendid motoring talismans from Jaguar’s storied past.
During the period covered, Jaguar Cars Ltd produced 350,000 cars, and most of their proud owners almost certainly acquired beautifully-crafted key fobs tailored to the Jaguar marque. But fewer than a thousand of these artifacts appear to have survived, and no living individual has seen more than a fraction of them. Marston determined to assemble a collection of these old jewels and record his research and observations before their stories vanished with the passage of time.
Creatively presented with color and monochrome photographs, Vintage Jaguar Keyrings is an original work of major interest to the motoring connoisseur.
