Re: [T3] A rare one is up

<x-flowed>Hey if I choose to advertise to a Porsche 356 guy or an EMPI collector about my T3 tool box and Keith doesn't understand why that's fine. Or anyone else for that matter. I just made it a bit easier for that kind of collector to find my odd type of item. Lighten up, have a shot of tequila or something.

As it is I have had 3 questions from PORSCHE guys wanting to know condition, completeness and such before they decide on bidding. So I guess my false web of trickery has paid off. I cant wait to catch some of those EMPI guys in my web as well!!!!!!

Scott thats a great spread below on what comes in the box. Im goint to check out that site a little more now.

The Finnish site gutefahrt.com has a page about spare tire tool kits that lists the contents of the Type 3 kit:

The type 3 tool boxes

In 1965 or 1966 Hazet developed a special toolbox for the VW type 3 series (VW 1500 limousine, the VW-Variant and the Karmann Ghia 1500). The interior of this box was very different from the boxes described earlier. This box contained 14 different tools, as listed below:
. a large screwdriver, no.: 811-6
. a medium screwdriver, no.: 813-2
. a phillips screwdriver, no.: 814-02
. a phillips screwdriver, no.: 814-3
. combination pliers, no.: 1850-22
. double ended spanner 7x8, no.: 450
. double ended spanner 9x11, no.: 450
. double ended spanner 10x14, no.: 450
. double ended open wrench no.: 605-13
. pliers, no.: 760-3
. wheel nut tool, no.: 772
. extended sparkplug tool, no.: 2505
. contact file, no.: 2125
. oilplug tool, no.: 2567

This list is actually not quite right because as Dave points out it also includes a 27mm wrench for the generator. Many of the tools are slightly different than the ones in the Beetle kits too. These kits are much larger than the others (made to fit the wheel instead of the hub cap) and include more tools. The box itself is plastic which might be one reason why so few of them survived.

Jason, you really hit a nerve when you posted those search keywords!

So its false advertizing.
Its just an ordinary bug kit (however rare or not that is) with nothing
specific to Type3's or Porche's or Empi? Im surprized folks don't complain
to ebay about it.

Good thing I don't spend much time (or money) on ebay...
