Tool kit question

Wondering if anyone can advise what was included in original amphicar tool kit? Pictures would be great! I inherited a bunch of spare amphicar parts from my father, but mixed in are Mercedes, etc. parts and tools. Difficult to know what is Amphicar. I’d like to assemble the correct jack, lug wrench, and whatever else came with the Amphicar.

I’ve looked at some of the older posts. They gave me a pretty good idea of what to look for. The wrenches have marking on them, is that a brand? Any close up pics of wrench markings?

Yes it is a brand. For what purpose one needs close-ups? Except for the production of counterfeits?
I inherited a bunch of old tools from my father and would like to know which ones are Amphicar. Some are from old VWs and some are from 50’s Mercedes, as he had many cars over the years. Just trying to sort out the Amphicar tools.

Thanks guys, I just dragged my 3rd Amphicar home today. It’s envmcased in ice at the moment but once I thaw it out enough to open the hood hoping it will have some of the tools also!
