I'm not sure what the batteries cased were made of back in the 50s and 60s but the "myth" came from the idea that the concrete will "pull" the water/acid out of the battery. With today's plastics it's not a problem.

Bakelite may have been the old material and it may have been porous.

I had heard the same thing many moons ago from a Deka battery rep...

Again--True or not??
