My first Porsche was a '62 B coupe that I bought as a single young man more than 40 years ago. I did not even know there was a new thing called the 356 Registry at the time. I just wanted a cool car, and the Porsche was all of that. Could have cared less about originality or "correct" parts in the tool kit.
In 1962, and only in 1962, Porsche made their own wrenches for the 356 tool kits. The
P-O-R-S-C-H-E script is right in the casting. Now the wrenches are rare and sought after by collectors.
Below is a photo of the only one of these wrenches I have. Guess I need to sell it . I'll put it on the 356 Registry Classifieds and see how it goes.
