OEM Lug Wrench - Size? Shape? Photo?

Under my hood, I have the OEM Jack, Jack Holder on the driver's fender... the OEM Jack lifting arm (I don't know what it's called) and the OEM hold down bracket. However, I am missing the OEM Lug Wrench! I would like to find one that is similar to the original, so that it can fit under the hold down bracket without looking out of place... or find an original.

Does anyone have a source for the original wrench... or at least a picture of their OEM wrench, bonus points if you know the dimensions, and/or how it sits on the passenger fender. I went to a car show this last weekend and saw someone with the originals still on and realized I had mounted my stuff backwards.

That's it! I have all but the lug wrench. Do you have a shot of the passenger fender with the stuff bolted down? I think I have the orientation right now, but I'm not 100%.

Thanks CarolinaHD for the pics. I haven't installed mine yet. Got everything together now, just haven't gotten around to putting it all in the truck. I'm pretty sure you can find some on eBay, that's probably were I got mine, I just can't remember. I do believe the El Camino used the same wrench.

THanks! I think even the guy who had the full setup at the car show this last week still has the orientation a bit off. What you have there looks like itís the proper way I think.

Now Iím gonna have to be on the hunt.

Any advice on keywords? lol

Buy an entire vehicle lol. My 88 was missing the jack and handle so I took it off the 89. That was when I was still gonna part out the 89. I never had any luck on ebay.

Looks like mongocanfly can set you up with one. But keywords would be, 81-87 Chevy truck lug wrench.

Re: OEM Lug Wrench - Size? Shape? Photo?

Found several one day wondering through the local Pull-A-Part. $1 each. Used them for hat holders on a coat rack I made. Wasn't paying attention to the socket sizes. Got a weird look from the cashier when I checked out with six of them.

Would you be interested in selling the lug wrench separately? I'd hate to break up a set. Zip is 40205. I'll hit you with a PM!

I don't care about the lug size, its basically just going to be for show more than anything.

I haven't stepped foot in a junk yard yet. I really want to get out there, but work and life gets in the way too often. I guess you used all of them?

A not real good pic of the coat rack. Black are the factory ones from Pull-A-Part. Shiny are the cut arms of some 4 ways from a local cheap tool place. Not sure where the 6th OEM wrench went. Recently moved and a lot of things are still hiding.
