Also, give serious consideration to the Interstate 17L 6-volt batteries. For
reasons no one can explain, Interstate makes this battery in the right size
with the proper integrated hold-downs, and fake (molded-in) "connectors" on the
top of the battery between cells. Would look perfect if they didn't have red
and white fill caps. You can buy them from any Interstate dealer, but you'll
probably have to ask the counter man to ask the Interstate truck driver to get
them for you -- no one stocks them, and most counter men (and even some
Interstate truck drivers) don't realize that Interstate makes them. They're not
less expansive than the repros-- I recall paying about $70 when I bought my
current set nine years ago.
The nice thing about them compared to the Antique Auto Battery Lucas repros
is that they come filled and charged so you don't have to find a local source
for battery acid, then deal with filling the batteries, disposing of the excess
acid, and charging up the batteries.
And unless you're concerned about the point or so that you might lose in
concours for not have exact duplicates of the original batteries, they are a
battery to use.
Or, if you're not thinking about concours, you could mount a modern, small,
12-volt battery on the passenger side of the drive shaft.
