Original Tool Package - What was it?

Post by Johnny_S » Fri Nov 28th, 2003 5:02

I've seen a list of the original equipment tools that came with the new 1949's however I've never actually seen photos of each tool. Does anyone have an original set of tools? If so, could they post or send me a copy?

I too am interested in the orininal tool kit for the 49. Among the miscelaneous tools and stuff that came with a 49 parts car was a tool roll made of canvas. It has numerous pockets, a pencil holder and a celuloid window where you can put an ID tag. It is divided into thirds. the outer flaps fold in and the whole thing rolls up and is secured with a built in strap This may or may not be the factory tool kit roll. The parts book list some of the optional tools but there are no pictures. Someone out there must have a complete mint car with all the options, including tools.

I also have a wooden box that came with that parts car. Again I have never seen the original tool kits so I have no idea if it is original. It is about 12x20x7, painted light green with two brass butt hinges and a small lock and a metal handle to carry it like a suitcase. I'm pretty sure I could reproduce these boxes exactly if there was enough interest. I'll see if I can get my son to post a picture of the box and tool roll when he gets home from school.

Just refreshing the thread .... I was able to find an original wheel chock, the metal version, on eBay some time back. Nice addition to the tool kit. I do find that if you go into these antique stores and dig through the tools its reasonably easy to find the correct screw drivers and pliers amongst the "collection" of stuff. Generally for a reasonable price too.

More difficult to find the correct bumper jack and parts however.

Tool Roll - Picture Please

Post by plym49 » Fri Sep 26th, 2008 6:19

I never knew that there was a factory tool kit. Would you mind emailing me the picture of the stock tools? I'll bet that I have some of the originals among my Dad's old tools. plym49 at yahoo

OK guys, I tried, I really did! I tried to tranfer pictures of the tool roll and other stuff from the camera to the computer with the hope of getting it to this site, but I just can not learn this stuff! I would have a better chance of doing a preformance rebuild on an engine with a hammer and a saw. Seriously, I will just never learn this stuff.
What I was trying to send pictures of was a bumper jack, canvass tool roll, a wooden tool box, a steel wheel chock, a phillips screwdriver and a double ended wrench with the #27 on it. Some of these things are definitely Mopar and some of them might be. Tomorrow I will go to the local flea market and see if I can scrouge up some more possibilities. Found a rear drum puller there for $15 about two years ago.Got to know what you're looking at.

Ok Gerry ... I think you've learned some more in the meantime. Did you ever find "new" tools at the flea market?

And here is the tool kit that I have in "Aunt Margaret" .... these tools were pretty much all in the car when I acquired her in 2006.

This just in, rolls of electrical tape are flooding ebay as prices surge towards the $100 mark for these rare original items.

Original trunk mat too! I do have the wheel chock, not much use as it is pretty flat. Are there any markings on the pliers and screwdrivers? Another cool trunk item is the road safety reflectors.

You like the tape? Nice effect I think! Still gooey after all these years!
