Group 24F battery tray
#1
Group 24F battery tray needed.
I have a 5 year old battery that I'm going to replace. It's a "24F'.
My car is a plain jane 302 with the a/c removed and no big draw items in the electric system.
Years ago, when I was rehabbing the car, I bought a new battery tray. I find out now that it is for a 27F battery, and being that I am going to stay with the 24F, I want to get a tray for  24F.
The part number I have is D00Z-10723-A, but this comes up for a 69-70. Will this tray fit a 72?

I’ve got the same issue. The tray that came out of my car was for a group 24F, and the tray I bought was the larger version like the one Don posted a link to.

CJ has two different trays, and I asked for the dimensions of the one that appears to be for group 24f.

Hopefully they review and answer the question soon

I have a new extra one that would like to sell if interested. I can measure it if you want.
I bought one when i was fixing my battery apron rust but ended up using the original since it was in good shape.

Don, this comes up as a "-B" which is the one I have now that is slightly too big.
NPD shows a "-1A" for a group 24F battery, but shows for 65-66, and in some parts houses, up to a 70. If the mounting is the same I'll get that one and get another 24F battery. The other alternative is to just keep this tray and get a 27F battery.

At one time I found the exact measurements for the 24F and the 27F trays, but I can't find them now. I DID find "ballpark" measurements for the 27F tray and they are 12 or 13 x 7, so if what you have is smaller, it might work.

Go to ebay and Daniel Carpenter has seconds on his site. They are made from the Ford tooling. I got one and looks just like original. Will see if I can find I just bought it because a good deal for future build. I think I have NOS Ford with the sticker still on if you want to pay a lot, lol.
I just went and looked up link here it is. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-71-FAIRLAN...:rk:1:pf:0
Ad say Ford # is D002-10732-B $21.95 They have always answered my emails questions quick. They have 100% rating with 4250 sales.
Oh BTW the reinforcement that goes under the inner fender apron that the battery tray bolts to is also back on for $30.00. I have ordered and great part here is link.

That is a "-B' tray and for a "27F". NPD also one for a group 22-24F with a "-3A" but is for only a 65-66.
My basic question is , where can I get a group 24 battery tray for a 1972 Mustang, OR will an earlier 24F  tray fit my 1972? Huh

It's unlikely the 65-66 will fit. If it did Ford would have left the part number for earlier ones for 71-73.

The 27F tray is dual purpose, 24Fs will fit it fine, they just don't fill up the full length.

The one I have measures 12 1/8 x 7.
