    Looking for a vendor that sells the Super stock battery for the Hemi Dart. Restoration Battery's site has expired.

    Unless your really anal and absolutely need the correct battery a large truck battery has the approximate dimensions. Slap a mopar sticker on the side and call it done....saving about $350.

    Jim's book references a 16 TF. Looking at an interstate and sticking a sticker on it.

    And if some one gives you crap about being not correct, ask them where is their car? Most of the talkers slither away when asked that question.

      Yes, length and width is the same. Height should be 9", or maybe 11" posts included like this one is. Add with some old red tractor battery caps and a sticker maybe one have no other choice... Thanks

      Sometimes you found them on a Battery and I saved these many years ago.
      By no means correct, but at least red...

      Chuck Smith from Chucks Classic Cars in Tennessee has made a battery box that looks like the Superstock battery. He had various Superstock cars and was tired of buying these batteries for a premium price, only for them to go flat in storage. I just bought one of these units and they looks very nice. They have 16TF on the side if you need it. $200 should get you one.

        it just sits inside Kramers battery relocation tray. You select a battery thats the same height as the box. It does not have a lid, thats the trade-off I guess. its just a powdercoated steel box with a sticker. Looks the part and cheaper because you can select any battery you'd like. Very clever.

        I hope you guys have better luck than I....they must be hard to come by, everyone I call never returns my phone call when I ask availability.....did get one to give me a price @329.99
        frustrating to say the least.
