Description Combination Tool - for original Ford car - dug out of ditch on Dewdney Trunk Road - Rusty 8 1/2 X 3 1/2" - silver residue on hammer portion - marking F310 on handle portion. 2 metal oblong pieces.

Provenance Made by Ford Motor Company for some of its earlier vehicles, this tool is a great multitasker. It is part hammer, part socket wrench and also functions as a pry or pick. A tool like this would make the mechanics job easier, as they would not have to switch tools as frequently while working on a vehicle.
This tool in particular was actually dug out of a ditch on Dewdney Trunk Road, and eventually made its way into the museum's collection in 1972.
