Those prices are crazy expensive. And I heard that the repros made by AAB don't last.
My solution: Walmart battery. Peel off labels. Buy repro sticker available from one of the club members, or on ebay. Then buy a 'tar topper', which is a plastic topper for a modern battery, with green or red (non-removeable) caps moulded into the piece. Looks great with original battery holddown. Total cost in US for everything is around 140.

Subject: [Chrysler300] Battery 1957 300C
I'm trying to locate a dependable company to buy an period correct looking battery for a 300C.
My search resulted in two options.
-Antique Auto Battery in Ohio: battery there is $280.
-Battery Central mall in Virginia: battery there is $359 with free shipping to US only...
I called Antique Auto Battery in March and ordered a battery from them. They said a few weeks. No news from them so far...after 8 weeks...
Any other places anybody had better service/luck with???
