In 1953/54 Garcia offered the first Kit as you can see in our Advertisement Gallery. The tackle box was originally a non-painted hammered-finished metal. In 1956/57 they introduced the new plastic tackle box with dividers and covered compartments. All of these were black except for what I believe to be the rarest, the 301K as you will see.


These were offered until 1961 as “true” kits but they continued to offer these components as separate accessories. The true original kits have small stickers on the left side of the box designating code and kit numbers for each model. In 1966/67 Garcia introduced the new kits now in brown plastic tackle boxes as seen in our vintage advertisment gallery.
