      My father was a big fan of Chrysler products and owned many over the years. As I recall, Chrysler used this type of key well into the 1980's.

      The Chrysler car keys are unmistakable, but I'd wonder about the ones in your 2nd pic..."Hudson" is/was also a common maker of cabinet and drawer locks, (maybe even 'key blanks'?) and I'm reading "Courier" on the other -- both those almost look too small to have been car keys. A (Chevrolet) Corvair would have likely had standard GM keys which in those days were indeed smaller than more current ones. (before the age of 'keyfobs' and all that)

      Hope this helps a little...as if anybody would doubt it, I also collect 'keys that don't go to anything anymore', I have *hundreds* of all shapes, sizes, and ages...
