67 SS 350 Battery Caps
« on: June 10, 2010, 01:29:56 AM »
I have a 1967 Camaro SS 350. I was wondering what color are the Delco R-59 battery caps "Broken O" ? My Antiquer Auto battery has Pale red colored "O"s on the top. I saw one car on Jerrie's web site with pale yellow caps. Does anyone know which color is correct?
Thanks,
Sean

The same R-59 battery was used in the '67 Corvette, and it had black caps with no highlighting color; don't know if the Camaro battery had different caps.

Is it possable that several colors (also no color) were used that year? Or would the caps be all black?  When was the red highlighting used? Yellow?
Thanks,
Sean

The color indicates the battery series. See http://www.camaros.org/underhood.shtml#Batteries
The service batteries had the colored caps.
Original ones, not sure, but that pic of the Y77 battery is from 1970, they had them by then....
