Vintage running board car tool box
Early 20th century (around 1915-25) car tool box that would have been affixed to the running board of a car of the period. Made of steel and painted in black, this box has an attractive handle and clever little lock that opens with the squeeze of a toggle located underneath. It has been repainted in grey on the inside and you can still see the holes for the screws that would have fixed it to the boards. The lock itself is stamped Eagle Lock Co, Terryville, USA. Eagle were a major manufacturer of locks in the USA from 1830 up to the end of WWII, including it is believed for tool boxes for the Model T Ford.
Nowadays this lovely shaped metal box would be an ideal storage solution or ideal to store the smaller tools used regularly in the home.
