Another question for you battery experts: the ads and my Autolite catalogs from 1963 to 1967 show the markings on the top of the battery to be red in color and some ads show the markings on at least one side to also be red. I see no evidence of any residual red on my battery. We’re the assembly line batteries different and without red letters?
Anyone have an assembly line or showroom photo that reveals
The battery?

Thanks again for all of the help.

Jim

We know it's a 24F by the ampere stamping on the side.  24F had red caps also, 22F (smaller) had yellow caps.

Attached is a period photo.  Only the warning lettering is yellow.
