This kit was unique to early A Carrera cars, produced in late 1955 and early 1956.
This is an interesting photo. It was taken for preparing the Driver's Manuals, and was later modified to suit the manual. Compare it to Carrera kit #1 and #2 on Charlie White's website - this is the base photo used for both pictures in the manuals, except that the jack was superimposed over the top, and the pulley holding spanner was added above the pulley wrench. Carrera kit #2 added the Philips screwdriver, just like in the pushrod kits of the same vintage.
