My garage: Restored Old Henry, and have had this WC51 on the road around 3 years now... Currently finishing a brace of Ben Hur trailers, and starting a 67 Galaxie fastback. Concurrent with the WC I restored a 74 TR6... Oh the joys.

So the hunt for the tools continues....

I have secured the bigger items I still need....

The proper wrenches, spark plug wrench, vlchek screwdrivers.

Spare parts I have done well with...even found period correct tins with tire valve covers and stems (Schrader).

I will say eBay is a double edged sword...helpful, but buyer and seller beware.
