  • OEM Keychains

    Most likely one of the many car related aftermarket key items that were sold in the 1950's and 1960's at locksmith and key shops.

      OEM Keychains

      I went to the Studebaker National Museum a few weeks ago and they had original keychains that someone in South Bend found in an old factory. Has anyone seen these type before. They look like a closed thin chain link with a spring inside to slide the lever back for your keys and they also have Studebaker printed on them.

        A lot of Stude dealers used this tube style of key holder throughout the 1950s. My parents and my Dad's parents bought most of the family Studebakers from Kincaid-Webber in Kansas City. Kincaid retired and it later became Webber Ford, which may explain why this had those keys with it.

            Can someone post a picture of the keychain that SNM is selling?

                Here's a picture of a leather key holder. It's embossed on one side with Mercedes Benz and on the other with McClelland Motor Co. 40 E. Wylie Ave. Washington, Pa. Studebaker-Lark.
                Along with it is my original Rockne key, a fairly rare item.
                I also have a light blue leather holder from Indiana Sales & Service with the flying Lark image.

                    As far as I can tell the chain link key holder is not being advertised anywhere. One would have to call the museum gift shop and ask about them.

                        This one claims to be original, not repro.

                        Or is this the one you're looking for from Ed Reynolds?

                            It does look like an original 1952 Champion original AFTERMARKET key fob, not original Studebaker since there were none!

                            It is in good shape for 55 years!
