I got one from AutoZone that fits fine. 35-DL. Basically, you are looking for a group 35 battery if you go to another parts store. If it has a handle on it I would take the handle off. they hug the hood insulation really close.
I bought a SP-22F, fit perfect. Was told it’s Nla as a car battery and is designated a garden tractor batt. Works good, 3years old, left lights on About a year ago and ran it flat and it charged back up and still going.
[quote quote=15141]I picked up a battery tray off of a 62 F85. It looks completely different that the one I have on my 62 Cutlass. thoughts.[/quote]
There are two styles, the one with the bracket that goes over the top of the battery and the one with the small clamp on the side. My South Gate-built 62 wagon came with the latter. Unfortunately, the batteries available today that fit don’t have the ridge that the little bracket clamps to.
62 F85 is recommended i am using this in my Ford truck which i use for towing services nyc queens, and I have been using this for 2 years and no complaints so far. there are some other good companies in the market but this one is a reasonable price and have a good performance.
