Yes, your car came with a bit of a tool kit. It would have included a tube 
wrench for spark plugs and lug bolts, a large rod for turning that wrench on 
lug bolts and for the jack, a small rod for turning the wrench on spark plugs, 
a small open ended 8/13 mm wrench, a Phillips/flat screwdriver, and maybe 
a pair of pliers. All this would have been in a simple fabric pouch with tie 
string. BTW, there were 2 styles of jacks: one that required a pumping action 
and one that cranked up.

I think the tool kits were probably the same on Beetles, but there might have 
been a change in the tube wrench, because it's a longer reach to the spark 
plugs on Type 3s.

Over time I've had some of those tools. Do you want me to see what I can 
put together?
