Welcome to the forum!

The correct 12 volt battery is Group 26R.

Good luck,

Yes, group 26R, as David said, most any battery supplier have them, as they fit several automotive applications.

Last one I got from WalMart. The trick is to get the terminals on the correct side/end. So look at the terminal ends in the battery box and see if the + should be forward or back and that will tell you which battery to get. Pretty much the cheapest one they have will work fine for you.

Keep in mind also that the "R" in a battery group number indicates it is reversed terminals. So if you have a group 26 battery and need the terminals on the other side it would be a 26R.

I picked one up at Sears for my '77, and it's been working flawlessly for several years.
