    it's a Novelty, mostly to use as a backup to the everyday Keys, for Show Only.

    One other problem however, is I think that they only came in Yale Keys for Champions as the one shown, so if you have a Commander V8 with the original Hurd Locks, it will not be usable.

    I think I do recall seeing these in the past, but didn't really care to have one, because the perportion of the Stude didn't look very good and the whole thing seemed so cheaply made that it would get busted, if it was used very much?

    They were very common little "Pocketknife" Key cases, usually thin gold or simulated plated, metal with a Ign./Door Key in one end and a Trunk/Glovebox key in the other end so you could use it like a pocket Knife. They were sold at most Key Shops/Locksmiths in the 1950's, I have about six of them.

    They came in '53 Starliner type also.

    It looked like metal, if someone was interested I could go back in a week or so. PM me.

    Metal. I've seen them on eBay, but it's been awhile.

    Was this a metal or leather key case? I have seen a few leather ones that were embossed with a dealer's name on one side.

    Studebaker keys with fob

    Was in an antique shop today, just as they were closing I spied in a glass case something with a 55 President embossed on the side. Pulled out my flashlight , it looks to be a metal? keyfob, red and white Studebaker, possibly a President on the side. This is smaller than a credit card. Has two keys, one swings out of each end. One has never been cut, the other had some notches in it. Price wasn't too bad but they were flashing the lights to get everyone out the door. Common item? Anyone interested in a closer look? Is about 15 miles off my beaten path. Didn't see a single Stude C cab part while I was there.
