I am selling this unused battery cover because I bought one of Larry's reproduction boxes. This is well made but doesn't fit his box.

This is too bad. Who ever made this cover did a nice job of doing it wrong! Why do people do these things? In addition, the skirts on the front and back have been modified to lay on top of the repro battery box. Ford didn't do this, as the handles for the battery were used for this purpose.

I wonder if the stampings and inspection cover dimensions are faithful to the original?

If they are, then a good metal worker could cut the top part off and weld it to a new lower section that was sized properly to fit one of Larry's correct boxes. :-)

Nevertheless Larry ... someone who doesn't have a show car might be interested. :-/. Sure wish you would have "correct" covers made for your boxes. A reproduction cover can't be made as easily as sheet metal box.

SOLD ... despite Larry's testimonial. :-)
