Actually, to be accurate, the outer cover was made of wood, but the battery jar (actual cell case) was made of rubber.

Here's some good reading on the early history of the automotive use of wet cell batteries.

Thanks for all the help guys. I took them off the charger last night and checked the voltage this morning. It's back down to 6.9V. I'm going to let them sit for a couple of days and see if the voltage drops any more.

After ready the suggested articles I see where my mistake was. I was thinking about the 12 Volt system and not thinking about the individual components i.e. the batteries.
