Clanford of Paisley Keyring

Found recently whilst having a clearout, this was the keyring on the key for H371 BNS a March 1991 registered Ford Orion mk3 (mk5 Escort shape) 1.6 LX in Matisse blue, which my dad purchased from them in September 1994. From memory the car cost £5625 and he traded in a 1986 D reg brown Austin Maestro 1.3 City and got £1100 trade in which was quite good considering it was basically scrap. Unfortunately only got 1 Clanford keyring as it wasnt very well prepped before sale, only supplied 1 key and although it also had a Clanford tax disc holder and rear window sticker, it still had its original Wylies Ford (Pollokshaws Road, Glasgow) number plates where presumably the first owner bought it new. Put up a bit of history as I love reading the history of items like this and thought others might too.
