Individually Handmade Keyrings For Classic Vehicles Made Here In England & Shipped Worldwide

National Benzole - original 'time warp' new old stock keyring from 1957 complete with promotional 'Happy Whitsun' tie-on label !!


2 in stock

Just 2 keyrings left

These keyrings are over 60 years old and are in brand new un-issued condition.

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 !

Promotional keyrings ready for handing out at the Easter & Whitsun holidays.

Although not marked as such – we know that these keyrings were made by Sculthorps of London at the time.

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 they came to us  from the man who put the box up 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 !
