Looking for the best place to get a Delco R89 Side post battery for my 1972 GTO. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Tim

Buy a repop cover and a new side post battery. The cover is reusable the battery only last 5 years +/- Been there done that.

Garage
There are several vendors offering the batteries but I'll wager a bet they all come from the same supplier.
At 350/400$ I would also consider a Topper.

Thanks both. I do have a topper, but really like the look of the original.
