I've read from multiple sites that Group 27 Red Cap was optional 66-72...
I like the higher CCA and more reserve from the group 27
The battery tray is the same size for all engines so it fits if you want the extra 100CCA

Build sheet is the best way to insure the proper Group battery for the specific car.  :cheers:

I found this website a few weeks ago. It has a list of batteries for most years, models and engine size. Click on yours and you can order a reproduction.
