Default "O" Embossed Lug Wrench

Would anyone know what the correct length is
on the "O" embossed lug wrenches? Specifically
for a late '60's car Camaro, Chevelle, Nova? I have
several...the smaller one measures in at about 18 1/2"
and the longer on measures in at 20 3/8". See pics...

Thanks.

The "O" is the maker's mark: Herbert Orr Company of Paulding, OH

The black one looks to be the correct one for a Chevrolet 1967 - 1981

I used to ride my bike by the factory everyday delivering papers. They are still in business and still make lug wrenches and hood prop rods.

I have a black one of these that is close to 18.5". Can't find an "O" on it anywhere. Where is that stamped?
