Here is a picture of an original battery for a 65 Shelby. Please remember that some of the cars had Cobra battery vent caps.

Great pic, from the orientation of the pic is the pos post on the right or left.

Hey all, would any of you be so kind as to share any pics of the trunk mounted reverse post autolite battery. If I remember right the correct one was a tar top but I cant remember and not sure what was the service replacement for that battery.

Thanks in advance.

Hey Cory, do you remember by chance the weight differences between an original and a repo..seem to remember that was the sure way to tell. I miss our old site I remember this being talked about

A couple quick pics of 6S1902. Finished with a true nut and bolt rotisserie restoration back in 2013. .....

The car has come a long way - Congrats :)
Thank you Jeff, truly without you we would have never known where to start and where to end! We took your advise and the car is now what we wanted. There are details for the next owner to work on as we just decided to keep some stuff original. Upholstery and door panels original, we kept our cracked steering wheel, did not re chrome the vent windows, kept our cracked plastic bezels for the plexiglass windows. Everything else though..nuts and bolt beautiful with factory details galore!! She is going up for sale soon, not sure how to handle that yet as my father wants me to take care of the sale. He wants to repaint it without the stripes as it did not come with, them not sure if that will help or hurt the sale. This car has been a passion of love. When my father bought it from his cousin back in 67 it sat in his garage almost its entire life with 39,000 original miles on the original engine and drive train. I remember as a kid just seeing it parked in the garage and thinking one day I would drive it. But when I got old enough and got my 65 fastback I just wanted it to be better and faster than the shelby..well I got faster but never better lol. Again Jeff you were pivotal in our build and owe so much to you, not to take away from everyones help, gaines, cowles, perkins, curylo to name a few and countless members here on this many names for me to remember but you all know who you are and gratitude goes out to you all as well. This community is outstanding with class act members. Thank you!

A couple quick pics of 6S1902. Finished with a true nut and bolt rotisserie restoration back in 2013. Could not have done it without everyone's help and support from this forum and the hipo forum.

What's your bottom line as I dont want to offer again and insult you. Let's do the deal

Thank you for that correction memory on this subject has faltered. Sorry for that.

It's been about 5 years since I have been on the forum..could not figure out why I had to register again and I remember when this topic came up so for history sake 6s1902 has been in the family since 68 and it did not have the washers and came with the ford adjustable blue shocks that we have on a shelf restored. As Bob stated, we put the washers on and konis on as that is whats expected was a tough sell to get my father to do it but hey we got an extra pair without the washers and the original correct shocks for the next the way we are preparing to sell her. Her rotisery restoration is done and she is a beauty literally a nut and bolt restoration.
