Original Vintage & Restored Leather Keyrings for Classic Cars & Motorcycles


Lotus – original vintage late 1950s leather ‘ Wymondham’ keyring – very scarce collector’s item

An original Lotus keyring which will have been produced in the very early days of Lotus – the late 1950s .

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

What a sensational keyring – and only the third example which we have seen in almost 20 years !

The first example was listed and sold a good many years ago .

The second example is now in the hands of a very good customer of ours of many years standing and is in use in his Lotus eleven .

This keyring now listed is the third one to pass through our hands and is probably the one that is in the best condition .

This is almost certainly an example of one of the very first keyrings which Colin Chapman ever had produced and will most probably have been issued with a 1957 onwards Lotus 7 or Super 7 or a 1958 onwards Lotus Elite .

This keyring is in really excellent condition with the LOTUS roundel and details silver embossed onto a simple & lightweight genuine black leather keyfob – the perfect addition to a Lotus car where ‘ to add speed add lightness ‘ .

Just look at that ‘phone no. :- WYMONDHAM 3411  !!

As we turn this keyring over in our hand and gaze at it and describe it here in this listing we are reluctant to offer it for sale as we never expect to see another one – but must learn the lesson that keyrings are our merchandise and should not be kept in our own private collection .

This keyring is a most important historical item produced for one of the most important legends of motorsport of the 20th Century .

The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive . SMOSO   00/593   ( 00/523 ) ( then 00/527 )   07/24
