If you mean a metal running board tool box, I'm pretty sure they were all period aftermarket, not supplied by Ford. Regarding the tools, check the link below for the tools section of the MTFCA Encyclopedia, or get a copy of "Model T Ford - the Car That Changed the World" and look near the back at the tool section.

There are variations in the oil cans over the years, do a Google search on "oil can MTFCA" to find old threads on the subject. For a 1925, I'm pretty sure that you want a can with a bayonet type mount for the top rather than a fully threaded one. An oil can came with every car, but the firewall mount that you see on many cars is a period accessory, not supplied by Ford.

A 1925 car would not come with a screwdriver, the pliers have one handle narrowed down to be a screwdriver.

A jack came with every car, I believe that most 1925s would have still used the geared jack, not the later ratcheting jack.

For the adjustable wrench (Monkey wrench), get one with a rounded handle end, the ones with the square extension on the end are for a Model A Ford.

Unless you get incredibly lucky, you'll probably have to build up a set of the correct factory supplied tools a few pieces at a time via the MTFCA Classifieds or eBay. Someone on Ebay occasionally offers full tool sets, keep an eye out for that. The vendors also sell reproductions of the tool pouch and either reproductions or used originals of some of the tools.
