SOLD to Germany: ULTRA RARE Vintage Original 1950s / 1960s Leather Auto Sun-Visor GADGET! – NEW in box!

Here we have an extremely rare vintage original 1950s / 1960s “The Leather Visor” BRAND NEW +in its original box! This magnificent multifunctional motoring accessory (with storage room for a road-map, sunglasses, note-book and pencil) was manufactured and  only for sale in the USA. The Leather Visor accessory is made of quality cow leather with chromed metal clips to mount the item to your existing sunvisor. A very handy gadget to have your personal items within arms-reach when driving! I can imagine that the owners of open sports cars in the 1950s / 1960s (Mercedes-Benz SL, Austin Healey, Jaguar, Corvette, Triumph, MG and others) would really have used this sunvisor to prevent their papers to fly away from the interior! The “Leather Visor” is in superb condition for its age. The leather is still smooth, the zipper works perfectly as does the push button to secure the (sun) glasses. This item is so special that we wanted to keep it for ourselves… Someone, somewhere around the globe will be very happy to fit it to their vintage motorcar and show it off to friends or even to impress concours d’élégance judges…

This Sun-Visor ‘clip-on’ will fit best on the thin 1950s and early 1960s (perspex and other) hard visors of 5-8 mm thickness. For later padded visors, the metal clips have to be bend a little bit wider. The Leather Visor weighs 188 grammes and it measures 34.5 x 13.2 centimetres. The item comes complete with its grubby original box! In the photos you can see the leather sun-visor clipped loosely to the thickly padded visor of a 1973 Citroën DS 23 Pallas, we did not want to bend the clips. “Enjoy the Ride!”

NOTE: The original notebook is included, the other items in the photo (ballpoint, Blaupunkt manual, sunglasses and car) are NOT included!
