Re: [Chrysler300] battery cap color



Hi All:
This is kind of a late response to the question of 300F battery cap  
colors----especially since I do not have an answer!!  Just thought my  endeavors 
might give some of you an idea of other places to look.  I only  could think 
of two color sources of an original (from 1960) 300F engine  compartment.  
One is the cover of Sportscar Graphic, June 1960, and the  other is the Bob 
Rodger video describing the car's attributes.  I was sure  that one would 
show the battery----which it did.  However, if there were  any caps on the 
battery, I couldn't see them.  ALL dark/black in the  battery area.  Maybe they 
were off, or they were some VERY dark  color.
As for the magazine cover---the caps in that publicity picture are a light  
yellow color.  That would be alright, if not for the fact the brake booster 
 and oil filler cap are also that light yellow color!  Oh yes, the valve  
covers are a gray and the generator is blue.  At least the air cleaners are  
gold and the rams red.  Would they have actually colored the caps?   Who 
knows?
Does anyone have another idea for a color ORIGINAL 1960 battery cap  
picture?
I purchased my 300F battery from Antique Auto Battery as well, and it has  
the red caps. Also, all the road test black and white pics show the caps  
dark---just a little lighter than the battery, itself.  Probably red, eh?  
Just a little something to think about for those so inclined.
300ly, Gil C.
