On my ute a garden variety tool box bolted to the rear of the running board. I will do the same for my Coupe.
I have seen an excellent idea at a national meet for my Tourer and the same would suit any closed cab motorcar. A shallow ammo box slung between the front bumper attachment brackets.

If you filled this Trunk with Tools, the front wheels would lift off the ground!
It is huge, but very practical for light stuff.

It's all about weight placement, even holds a nice clean pair of coveralls if needed for those nasty road repairs......LOL

In my 45B Coupe, everything goes under the seat. In my 190A, I have an accessory tool box in the front, and it holds all the tools and spare parts for touring except a spare starter & head gasket. The starter & head gasket are under the rear seat.

Take a look at this thread - it discusses that particular toolbox; unfortunately anyone looking to get one now is about a year and a half late : (

This box was sold years back in a computer store for holding tools to repair PCs..... How could I resist buying a tool box featuring an AA truck!

They are on the market now. Skyler Deviney restarted manufacturing from the original designer, apparently on a low volume basis for now. He did a nice job with mine. I received it a month or so ago. I need to have it powder coated before I install it.

That one Carl has looks interesting.

I have a Tudor. Tools, jack, flares, and some small parts under the rear seat. I have a felt lined trunk, and use that for clothes when we travel.

Anyone have those wells that Snyders sell you can install in the rear floor board?
