    I have an 11-Drawer 55" Classic Snap-On Tool Chest that was custom made with a Tesla Roadster theme. The chest has moved with me a few times, and has some minor chips and scraps (as seen in photos), it also needs a new rubber topper which cost about $50 - but overall it is in great condition, no dents. If you know snap-on tools you know that the tool storage systems are very expensive, this is the only custom Tesla system probably to exist in the world, I can't be completely sure - but I'm quite certain. I'm running out of space in my garage and would like to part with this tool chest.

    This is an item that cannot be shipped through traditional means, it's hundreds and hundreds of pounds. If you'd want it shipped you have to arrange a moving company to move it, if you pick it up in person you'll need a ramp to get in on a truck.

    Every car guy that has seen it has tried to buy it from me, and I've never budged in selling it; but as you've seen over the past month or two, I'm really pairing down my collection. I have been unloading different cars, parts, and memorabilia of collector cars, including Tesla. To have snap-on build you something similar would cost just shy of $8,000, as I remember. Make me a fair offer given that this is used and bumped and bruised slightly; it's one of those things you'll never see again.

    Thanks.

    Coolest thing I've seen all day! Unfortunately, I don't have a need.
