Hi everyone. My name is Jylian, and I'm 17. I do enjoy these cars, but I'm actually here for help. I'm in dire search of a very special keychain. It's leather, with a white emblem, and the GT logo in the middle. My guy owns a 68 Torino, and it's his dream car. One thing he's always wanted was this special keychain that you could get with it from the factory. I have a really fuzzy picture of one I found online, and that's it. These are insanely rare keychains, and I'm looking all over for one. If anyone could help me and at least get me in the right direction, I'll be forever grateful. I'm not limited on a budget. Please, anyone that can help me, let me know. Thank you so much!

Can you post the photo you mentioned?

Here is one on Ebay, but I'm sure if this could be it or not:

Welcome Jylian.  Post some photos like Carlos said, so we know what you are looking for.  Nice to see that young people still have interest in old cars.
 
Here's a how to thread if you need help posting pics.

this is the one I'm looking for. I've had trouble getting this image to upload, but here it is. Black leather would be preferable, but any of this variation would be amazing.

I have scoured eBay and Facebook and Craigslist and nobody seems to have them. I've been through some of these forums before and the people can be so helpful in things like this, and I figured this was the best place to go. Thanks again guys!

^^ Agreed. These were VERY popular for awhile. Surprised it's not out there, but I'll definitely keep my eyes out for one like this for you! And welcome!

As far as I can tell, these were only made for 68 and 69. There annoyingly rare to a point that you can't even find a picture when you look it up. But my guy wants one, and that means I'm gonna find one. I know this is a long shot for something this small and rare. But I'm determined to find one

This was the post I was able to find the picture off. But this was sold years and years ago, and for some reason the listing hasn't been taken down. I was tricked by this one haha. Still looking..
