    One of the exceptional things about Ferrari's are the beautiful tool kits, jack sets and unique accessories they have come with over the decades, particularly some of the great vintage cars. Please share some of your favorites.

    Please share correct photos. I’d love to see what it’s supposed to look like.

    It is hard to tell from the photographs, there are an incorrect number of wrenches and some are the wrong size. 250 toolkits had 2 screwdrivers, not 4; the lead hammer is later 365 type. It appears to be an outside plug 250 kit but plug wrench is for inside plug. Here is the image from the 250 GTE Owners Manual.

    Thanks for sharing. That’s the purpose of this thread, though, to date, I’m the only one who’s bothered to post anything.

    Texas!
    My only tool kit story is also the story of my introduction to vintage Ferraris. The year was, I think, 2000 or 2001. I was looking at buying a 1960 PF coupe, 1637GT, from Garry Roberts in Costa Mesa. It was the first Ferrari ever imported to Japan. When I saw it, it had been painted white with what looked like a house paint brush. The deal was $50k for the car, or $60k for the car and the tool kit. I took one look at the tool kit and said, "You've got to be kidding me. $10,000 for these cheap ass tools?" I later ran the deal by Tom Shaughnessey, who if you know Tom, told me he'd pay $10k for the toolkit in a heartbeat. My restoration experience until then had been old British motorcycles, and I was stunned. Tom then explained, a PF got the same toolkit as a GTO or a SWB. Plus, back in the day, almost all the toolkits got stolen by the dockworkers. So if you wanted your car to be platinum and all you're missing is a toolkit, you'll pay whatever it takes.

    Unfortunately, this experience convinced me vintage Ferraris were out of my league. If people were crazy enough to pay $10,000 for a bunch of old tools, other sports beckoned. So I passed on the car. Last I heard somebody did a hell of job restoring it, meaning a lot of money, and it is worth over ten times what I would have paid. I never found out what happened to that toolkit.

    Hi
    I think the above F40 kit is missing a few of the original items.

    The correct items that are present:
    the tool kit bag, the screwdrivers, the spanners and the large wheel nut socket.

    The bits that are not original:
    The 3/8 ratchet, 3/8 extension, and spark plug socket - can't tell about the UJ from the picture. They should all be USAG:
    16mm spark plug socket - USAG CHROME VANADIUM EXTRA 279 MG
    3/8 EXTENSION - USAG CHROME VANADIUM EXTRA 236
    UJ - USAG CHROME VANADIUM EXTRA 241
    Ratchet - USAG CHROME VANADIUM EXTRA 237 3/8 (i have seen two different ratchets - one with the red insert, the other just black)

    The tow eye hook looks like it is the one from a Testarossa, although i have seen this type in diagrams - the one below i have seen in several cars - but who knows its Ferrari, anything can happen.

    MICHELIN VIGIL TIRE PRESSURE GAUGE WITH ORIGINAL BLACK BOX

    The spare wheel pins should be in the original blue bag

    The spare set of spark plugs should be in the original blue bag

    The pliers should have the black anodized finished

    THe round bulb/fuse holder - seen them in yellow, green and grey

    hope this helps
    cheers Mark
