Another thing to remember is whatever battery you get, dont get a
"Maintenance free" you need to be able to add water, otherwise as it slowly
boils off your battery life will be less when it gets too low and you cant 
do anything about it.

To continue the battery thread...

Since getting the '73 Fasty back on the road I've been using a 5 year old
battery that still holds a charge, but is likely to go soon. I don't see
much in the way of Group 42 batteries locally...any idea what other battery
types, if any, have the right configuration of terminals and depth to fit
the standard underwear space? I'd likely have some kind of
protector/insulator on top of the battery to prevent shorting a taller
battery on the seat springs (and don't often have rear seat passengers in
this car anyway)
