I just spent an interesting 20 minutes or so scanning the search function for Cox wrenches looking for a reference to one without any markings. Found none.

Everyone has here has at least a couple, heck CB was giving them away and another fellow, now departed the forum was selling them at five bucks apiece.

But I digress.

This totally unmarked wrench came with a recent purchase of a Cox Mercedes tether car. It is the only one that I have with no markings. Anyone have another?

Does anyone have a breakdown of what wrench goes with each engine?

Now, this is an interesting question. I had not thought of which wrenches went with which engines. Or is it possibly a timeline thing.

It's been bugging me too.  What wrench came with what and at what time.

I started by gathering some of my loose engines/wrenches comparing them with engines/cylinders in the Dannels/Sitter book.

To much work and inconclusive, so I went to the horses mouth so to speak and my NIB engines.  

Didn't take me long to discover where that unmarked wrench came from that started this whole thing.  Mud was correct when he speculated that it came with an early engine.  

My original and well traveled Space Bug Jr.  Totally unmarked wrench.  Bought around 1952/3. Could have been provided with the 1961 Cox Mercedes tether car.  Only two I have ever found. Both are exactly the same.

maytag wrenches were collected along with the engines.  someone wrote a book, and labeled them by number.  The rarest of the set used to be worth hundreds of dollars.  There were even people counterfeiting them for profit.  I expect the old collectors are dieing, and they are not as popular.

Yes, people will collect most everything from matchbox covers to exotic cars. Comic books and baseball cards are always hot but I never got into any of that, although when I had my MGTC I had some whitworths, probably still kicking around somewhere.

These Cox wrenches are curious, seems to be no rhyme or reason to their numbering as they were numbered having several different variations within each type.
