Scott Drake Autolite "sta-ful" 24F Battery for 1965-1971 Mustangs.Scott Drake Autolite Sta-Ful batteries are authentic reproductions of the originals that use the original case, and not just cover molds.

The electrolyte is trapped in the separators so the battery can't leak, even if the case is broken.

If you are in need a new battery for your classic 1965-71 Mustang, then one of these will add an extra touch to your engine compartment for that original look. The look of the battery is true to the time period. The battery is well designed and is quite heavy, so it's good it comes with free shipping. It is a bit pricy, but if you save up your CJ Pony Parts RPM points it's a pretty good deal. The description states it comes fully charged, but that's not quite true. I put a battery tender on mine as soon as it arrived. It has been charging for 12+ hours and has not finished yet. If you store your car over the winter, then you will need to get a battery tender to keep it fully charged. Failure to keep it charge will void the 4 year limited warranty. So, if you want to complete that original look and still have a modern battery, I recommend this product from CJ's.
