Postive battery cable length?

Does anyone know the length needed of positive battery cable that will route along the factory location and down the heat shield tube to the starter? 1965 389 tri power, no a/c and manual steering and brakes. Thanks!

4awg wire is only $2-$4 a foot. By 5 or 6 feet and trim to fit. I only use flexible welding cable for main power or to starter.

Order the correct cable from one of the vendors. By far the best quality, fit, and solution. Crimped-to-fit cables are not as good as the factory produced ones with built-in terminal ends.

Thanks for the input guys. $99 for cables from a vendor...no thanks! Not looking for originality, but fairly proper length, especially for the positive cable in a pre-made style. Just wanted to route it along whatever the factory location was. Looked at several '65s online and there is a hodge podge of routings, if visible. Thanks again.
