Tool Kit Contents listed in the owner's manual show the "contents" of the tool kit. Do not go by the photo, as it is not necessarily the exact kit Porsche placed in the car. in this example, there is a Stubby, Lug Wrench and a Messko Gauge shown that was for earlier cars. Also shown, is a JÖRG-labeled Phillips driver that was not part of any 356 kits.

Note: Spark Plugs were shown as part of the tool kit in the 356B owners manual dated 9.1959, but then disappeared from the later editions... by at least the 4.1960 edition, Spark Plugs were no longer noted as part of the tool kit.

from 9.1959 edition                                                              from 4.1960 edition (Above photo courtesy of Charlie Duval)

NOTE: These photos are from the original owner of a 1961 356B Roadster S90, delivered September 1960, VIN#88408 Belonging to Alex Fucile, longtime Registry member. This was a dealer replacement tool kit given to him after the car arrived in California because the original tool kit was stolen at the port.
