NOW SOLD – Sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
An original vintage Jaguar ‘black growler’ keyfob badge for Series 3 E-Type dating from 1971 which we are offering remounted onto a new leather slimline teardop keyfob in full grain black leather as can be seen in the photos.
This vitreous enamel badge is in really excellent condition .
We have seen very few examples of this badge or complete keyring over the last 10 years and this is the only remounted badge which we have offered over that time.
The badge was made by Simons Concessionaires of London – their details are cast into the back of the badge.
It is known that Manhattan Windsor of Birmingham also made these badges for Jaguar at the time.
Bud Marston describes these Jaguar Series 3 ‘black growler’ keyrings in his ‘Vintage Jaguar Keyrings’ book which is featured at the beginning of the Jaguar section in our website shop.
Bud states that keyrings with this badge were listed in 1971 by Jaguar in an interim parts list for the Series 3 E-Type under part no. 9036 as an optional extra to be supplied with the car.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive and is an example of what we are probably best at…………….remounting original 20th Century keyfob badges onto new leather keyfobs of exactly the same style as the original to enable the badge to continue in use well into the 21st Century.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled. 00/541 01/20
