Hi all!

I have a '58 Plymouth with the GC 350 and it's time for a new battery. I'd like a vintage-looking battery if possible--does anyone have a suggestion?

I found this one but am not sure if it's appropriate for this engine:

Thoughts or other places I should check?

Thanks!

Have you checked out a battery topper? Unless you must have a factory original type battery, they look pretty impressive for about $30 and can move from battery to battery when needed.

Here is a picture of my engine compartment with my battery topper on a new flat-top battery from O'Reilly's.

I just googled battery topper and the source for this one popped up. This was 5 or so years ago so maybe things have changed.
Try googling it and see what happens. No harm in trying. Good luck!
