An uber-rare original toolkit for a Ferrari 275 GTB is up for grabs

Up for auction is a complete, original toolkit for a Ferrari 275 GTB which, let me remind you, is extremely rare and collectible. The Ferrari 275 GTB is a two-seat grand touring coupé that was produced by the famed Italian marque between 1964 and 1966. It’s one of the highly coveted classic Ferraris from its golden era and its not unusual for one of them to sell for several million dollars at an auction. However, collectors who buy such classics usually want their cars to be in absolutely original condition, complete with each and every part it came with from the factory; and the original Ferrari toolkit is one of the most important things. One such Ferrari 275 GTB is missing its toolkit, which is up for grabs at an upcoming Bonhams auction.

The toolkit comes in a greased leather bag that contains a set of wrenches and screwdrivers, and a special wrench for adjusting the carburettors. Just like toolkits from that era, it unrolls to show a neatly organised yet elaborate range of instruments. In addition to all the wrenches and screwdrivers of different sizes, the kit also has a Bellux Roadside Reflector in its original plastic sleeve. Bonhams estimates that it will sell for anywhere between £5,000 and £7,000 (about $6,400 to $9,000 USD) when it crosses the auction block in London on the 3rd of December.
