A very rare keyring – very few keyrings were made in the 1960s specifically for Triumph Vitesse.
This is only the 3rd original example which we have seen over the last 10 years.
This is an original keyring which will have been made in Birmingham in the 1960s – before automotive keyrings were made in The Far East.
At that time most keyrings for the world’s cars were made in Birmingham – it was quite an industry.
This keyring is in very good condition for it’s age.
The badge is in nickel plate with genuine vitreous enamel detail .
Had the badge been made later in The Far East then the enamelling would have been in modern resin ( plastic ) based enamel.
The badge is mounted onto a black keyfob which has the genuine leather symbol plainly gold-embossed …………………..but the keyfob is not genuine leather.
It is in good quality textured faux leather. Trades descriptions legislation in the 1960s did not pick up on this and we commonly see similarly marked 1960s and 1970s keyrings.
Having said that these faux leather keyfobs often actually lasted better than the ones made from the genuine leather being used at the time for keyring production.
This keyring is original & correct for use with 1600cc or 2 litre Triumph Vitesse 1962 – 1968.
The keyring in the photos is the actual one which you will receive.
When it has been sold this listing will be cancelled.
