Battery Cover Autolite 24F 1965-1971 is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Need to be creative I bought this because the price was low enough to try and make it work for me. I use an Optima battery in my 69 428 Mach1. It took some effort but I'm happy with result. The posts on optima are very close together as you can see in photo. I centered the top to fit the optima. I then used thin wall abs plastic to create the sides of the battery. I also made corner wraps from abs. I reinstalled the battery and slid dummy Autolite battery over the Optima and used original Ford Battery retainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I needed to finish the car This finished my car out to showroom ready. The battery cover looks like a real battery. Make sure you know which one to order. Or the negative and positive will be on the wrong side

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Battery Cover Looks like a real old fashioned battery. Its hard to find a flat top battery that it will fit on 24F batteries are not readily available with flat top and correct post spacing meaning center to center. You may have to file the holes out a bit to make it fit. I have an old 24F battery and it fits but its the battery that needs to be replaced.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Pricing Around! I was hesitating to purchase a battery cover for my Mustang. I just thought that whenever I saw it on line it seemed to be just too expensive.......until I saw it available from CJ Pony Parts for much less than what others advertise it for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to add that original touch. Can't go wrong with making your classic appear like it uses the classic Autolite battery. Just take the battery cover to your local auto parts store and start checking to make sure it fits.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Battery cover Does not fit down on top of the battery at all I will put it on the shelf with all of the other aftermarket parts that don't fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for. Had to increase the hole size just a little. No big deal. Can't see where I increased the size. Looks great
