    Just finishing total restoration of a 70 Cuda 440. Everything has been brought to factory original. Am thinking I want to put in original battery type. Any good sources? Also, any particular battery brand that was commonly installed? Proper color of caps? Thanks.

    In general, the 440s came with the Group27 70A red cap battery.

    Recently Antique Auto Battery was the only game in town but I've heard they do not have anything in the pipeline anymore.

    I remember reading about fake clip on tops that you fit onto a modern battery that make it look like the original type can't remember the details.
