WTB: R model battery box cover

Recommended Posts

It appears that all the new units are of a slightly different style. Here is a pic of mine, these is an original from a 79 model year truck. Anyone have one like this with the three protruding dimples on the sides?

I am going to have to disagree with you on that. I am positive these are original box covers. I was also at a local junk yard the other day that had 2early 70s R models that had the exact same covers although they were rusted.

Is the one you have with those 3 dimples has 3 horisontal lines on the front wall istead of an "X" pressing? Looks like Canadian cover to me.

I even have this one and I don't need it. So if you come pick it up I'd give you a cup of tea either :)

P.S. As far as I know an American style "X" cover puts in place of that one as like it was there before for years.

It doesn't cost anything to pay attention.
