    I have a 1971 Dino 246 GT I wanted to know if anyone can tell me who the original manufacturer was for the pliers that were included in the tool kit. Can anyone tell me if the original pliers have any writing on them?

    Thanks!

    I believe the pliers are the same that come in some Fiat/Lancia tool kits. These come up on Ebay frequently for small money. I will have a look and get back. I don't think there is any writing on them.

    They rarely come up on ebay, I look everyday. under Fiat,Lancia,Ferrari, Italian pliers. Trust me they are not out there.
    Unsure who made the pliers in italy there are 5 different styles of pliers 1958-1974 that I have seen. David Smith scowered a swap meet at Imola, Italy
    2 years ago only to come home with one pair. I have Repro pliers in stock
    I will purchase every set of original pliers anyone comes up with. $300 waiting

    Hear are pics of my pliers. One from my original Dino tool kit that has lost it's plating and two from a Lancia tool kit and one smaller imposter. The big ones are exactly the same. PM me as I think I know where to find one.
