Autolite 24F Battery Cover for 1965-1971 Mustangs.Now when you open your hood you can have the look of the old style battery with the dependability and lower cost of a new maintenance free battery. This cover will fit on top of most 24F size batteries.
The cover is made out of molded plastic and features the red "AUTOLITE" and "sta-ful" logo. It has the correct holes for the battery terminals to stick out.
Happy with the quality. While I agree that the coloring is darker than it should be it still looks good and is a big improvement over the big green top on the Interstate battery I have. I did have to take a round file to the holes to make it fit perfectly also. For that reason I gave it 4 stars, not a big deal IMO.
Nice idea, but the caps and lettering are way too dark and they look way too fake. I purchased another one from another Mustang parts supplier that has bright red caps and lettering and the caps are even removable so they spin and can be aligned any way you want.
I'd save your money and buy a real battery. This fake looking cover is the wrong color and a bad fit. Nice idea, not well executed.....
It will work with modification. Reds are not near bright enough
The cover looks OK, but the top terminals DO NOT fit the recommended 24F60 battery without modification. You have to carefully enlarge the holes with a 1.25 inch hole saw to fit over the base of the terminals otherwise the cover will not sit flat. The red paint on the false cell covers and Autolite script could be a little brighter.
