Mustang Battery Covers

These battery covers are manufactured out of high-quality ABS plastic, will feature a black textured finish, and will obviously hide that awful looking battery.

Some key fitment notes that you will want to keep in mind is that there will be two different series available for anybody that owns a 87-04 Mustang. A 58 series and 59 series battery can be used in these cars and the main difference between them is that a 59 series battery is a tad bigger than a 58. You can more-than-likely glance at the top of your battery and find a model or part number in relation to the series. If you can’t, dig around on the internet or call the manufacturer of your battery for more info.

Another notable fitment concern is for you 05-14 owners. All 2005-2014 Mustangs used a 96 series battery. The only difference was the way Ford provisioned the positive and negative cables. 2005-2009 Mustangs had cables that ran to the firewall, where-as 2010-2014 Mustangs had cables that were navigated near the strut tower brace. So keep that info in mind whenever you plan on picking one up.
