The one with the round loop on top I think is a little older? Anyone researched these and know, " just the facts"? Thanx in advance for definitive ID! Want a complete tire & jack tool set for my trunk display 1940 56C.

Hi, 2Carb40. The lug wrench socket on the RIGHT is definitely correct for 1939 BUICK. The BUICK parts book for this period does not break out individual tools. Instead, it simply lists "Tool Kit" by years. The book indicates the same kit part number for all 1939 to 1941 LHD BUICK's. So, the lug wrench on the RIGHT should also be correct for your '40.  John

Thanx John

          I just get a bit of a kik outta having correct small stuff like this when I can find and ID them correctly. You might even have been a past owner given that I bought them from a mutual acquaintance yesterday.

20160511_132504.jpg.cc328faa6e92a6cd50186c8f6310fe63.jpgIm guessing the wrench with the circular top is correct for 1941, but will have to do more checking. Also part of the fun! No more guessing. This photo of 4,600 mile original, (not a typo),clearly shows wrench in ? So, '39-'40 at least, maybe more, for one of them and 1941 for wrench with 'loop' at top.

The attached photo shows the tools I have in my 1941 Buick Roadmaster. I know the jack is correct. 

The other tools (including the bar with a loop) came with the jack ... they were all tied together and

sold as a set of 1941 tools. I have not found any information to the contrary. I suspect that the short bar is used to remove (break free)  lug nuts by running the long one through it.
