NOW Sold – sorry this keyring has now been sold and can no longer be ordered
These keyrings are almost 60 years old and are in brand new un-issued condition.
No prizes for dating them as 1957 !
They were left at The Progress Garage in Yapton Lane, Walberton, Near Arundel in West Sussex ( telephone no. Yapton 234 ) by the National Benzole representative whose name was Mr. Matthews – in 1957 !
Too much information ? Not really – this is the sort of motoring history which went largely unrecorded.
These keyrings were all that was left in the box after the rest had been given out to customers who had petrol accounts at the garage. The box was put up on a shelf & only recently came to light.
How do we know ? Because we bought them from the man who put the box on that shelf in 1957 !
We have just a few to offer as shown in the photos complete with the tie-on label. When they have all been sold it is very doubtful that any more will ever appear !
