Stahlwille! beautiful tools- probably the prettiest of all the german tools without any loss of function/useability.
I have a few including their front wheel bearing wrenches (spanners to us).

I’ve had this sweet benrus clock for awhile now although it’s not Super rare I’ve decided to use it in my 54 rag and it works like new.

Does the catalog show a list of what tools are included in the kit? Or could you list what's in it? I've not seen it before.

This is on a Split Window on display at the Shiftung VW museum. I have never seen one with this mounting method. It has a U shaped wire with threads on the end that fits around the hinge. It is very simple and requires no modifications to the hinge.

Any ideas who made these and what era?

Here is an original Volkswagen of America accessory…the elusive Car Care Kit that was sold in the early 1960’s. This one found in an antique mall in Oklahoma City a number of years ago. It was complete except for the polishing cloth and the touch up paint. Many of the contents were never used. Took me a few years to find someone willing to sell a bottle of the correct vintage/type of touch up paint. Still looking for an original polishing cloth – the one currently in the kit came from an auto parts store. Enjoy.

For a long time I have this set of small ceramic bowls in my collection. Now I have found an article about it in a magazine for advertising and graphics from 1956. According to this, they are probably small ashtrays that could be ordered as promotional gifts from the VW advertising department. They were designed by Hans Gebauhr, who also designed some of the beautiful VW posters from the same time.

I bought a later 70's Westfalia shop clock awhile back that was complete and in very good shape. I recently pulled out the old clock work and put in a modern quartz movement.

Looks nice and now hold the time perfectly.
