This is an important historical Volkswagen item .

This keyring is almost the holy grail amongst VW beetle enthusiasts.

We have had just one of these badges over the last 10 years – but never a complete keyring like this one – very few can have survived.

This is an original vintage torpedo keyring made specifically for the Volkswagen Beetle by Castle Units Developments of Castle Gate in Leicester UK. Their famous CUD mark is on the back of the badge.

CUD were very prolific badgemakers in the late 1950s – which is the period in which this keyring was made.

The keyring is in excellent condition – and is over 50 years old !

On the back of the torpedo keyfob are embossed details of Heathway Motor Spares .
