III Carrera BAGS and TOOLS

IIIa. BAGS

ALL tool Bags were also identical to that of the regular cars of the same corresponding year with the exception of the 1963 tool bag, that was unique to the 1963 Carrera 2.

1955-56 Early A Bags

1957-59 Late A Bags

1960-61 Early B Bags - Blue

1962 - no information

Spring 1962 - 1963 - Bag similar to 356C bags, but had an extra buttoned loop to hold the lug

       wrench. This bag precedes the 356C bag, and was most likely made initially to hold all the

       Carrera 2 tools, which the bag of the normal 1963 356B's could not hold.

1964 - 1965 - identical to 356C bags (Note: although Carrera 2's are generally believed to have

       been built up until 1964, one last Carrera 2 was built in January 1965 (chassis 131753).

IIIb. LIST OF SPECIAL TOOLS FOR CARRERA Models,
