Note: There will be a lot of controversy from this page (most likely, more than other pages on this website). For that reason, I decided to include a note. The Early Pre-A tool kits were assembled in the infancy of Porsche's manufacturing, and most likely utilized off-the-shelf items. Some of these items might have been found in other kits from other Automotive Manufacturers. There is a lot of variation and discussions on the topic of which Long Flat Screwdriver was original to these kits. I have decided to include all known variations as they are period correct and might have been used to fill up one of these early tool kits. I personally feel that the 5mm tip variant was found in the earlier Pre-A kits and it is possible that the later kits featured the JÖRG 1661 (as would be found in Late Pre-A kits)

Reference Note: please look towards the bottom of this page for reference from Jim Perrin and photos from the Porsche 1954 356 Workshop Manual
