SOLD SOLD SOLD! 49-54 Pontiac 6 Volt Battery Hold Down


Recommended Posts

I am told that this is the correct battery hold down for a 1949-1954 6 volt EE battery. Very good condition. I do NOT have the top cover. 20 1/4” between hold down bolt holes

 

$120.00 shipped to the lower 48.

Yes. $105.00 USD and You would be responsible for all shipping, exchange rates, fees, etc. Recent shipments of this smaller size to England and Europe seem to be cheaper via USPS. Would that work?

Hi Gary,

 

Thank you for the reply.

 

Let me check the hold down bolts on my battery tonight. I am sure it will be ok as my battery sits perfectly in the tray.

 

When you say you don't have the top cover, is this not the top hold down cover? or am i misunderstanding something being quite new to Pontiacs?

 

Regards

 

Joe

I’m not a Pontiac person, rather I’m into Buick’s. I ended up with this thinking it was Buick. Buick’s and Pontiacs both used the long narrow batteries. In 53 Buick went to a V8 in the Super and Roadmaster and a 12 volt Battery which is essentially the same size. I think the 6 volt was known as a Group EE and the 12 volt was a Group EEE.  The 53 Buick 12 volt hold down (one year only I believe) is two piece and a little bit different in configuration .  Picture attached. The one I am offering has been identified as Pontiac and may possible have been used by Packard.

 

I have googled pictures of Pontiac flathead engine compartments and in a couple of pictures it appears that the hold down may have had a cover similar to the Buick. Just my assumption. 

 

Let me know if I can help answer questions.

 

Gary

In the Buick world, the tops are being reproduced. Is that a possibility for the Pontiac’s?

 

 

I gave up looking and ended up making my own top cover. I think it really cleans up the entire look.

Hello Summershandy

 

That looks really good. I don’t posses the skills or tools to make my own so the search will continue.☹️

Thanks Joe,

It's not what I wanted but it's all I could do. The original has some dimples in it that I could never do without a press or something. 

It's not the best but it does the trick.  Good luck in you're search!

Morning Gary,

 

The bolt spacings are the same so all looks good.

 

Can i be cheeky and ask if $200 all in would be acceptable to you?

 

Regards

 

Joe
