If you are referring to what will fit upfront in a Breeze battery box, it's designed for a Group 51 lead acid or gel battery, on the other hand if you want to go smaller save a bunch of weight and still have a ton of cranking amps go with a Lithium Ion battery (Which is what I ended up doing) just be aware that they are very expensive.I think I will wait until the engine/transmission is installed (February) to assess room and location. Probably go with the front - somewhere. The Breeze box suggests a Group 51 battery. What, in all your humble opinions, is the smallest (dimensional) battery one could get away with?
This is the battery I have. Always starts without any trouble my 331, 10.5 compression. You don't need a truck battery to start these cars. The large high capacity batteries are needed when you have large amounts of accessories and high loads.Rich,
The battery looks very small (unless a lot of it is hidden). WEhatbtype are you using?
I wrote this a couple days ago and deleted it, figuring "none of my business". But we are here to help each other, and this actually bothers me. Feel free to roll your eyes.I ended up on floor of passenger footbox. Above passenger feet was original idea but ended up using that fabbed up box to house my heat/defroster blower.
It works okay. Passengers have not yet complained about limited foot area. My wife is pretty short so with seat bolted full back there is plenty of room and the weight distribution on track is pretty good.

That is an exceedingly terrible location from a safety standpoint in a car with a passenger seat. If you get rear-ended or back into the wall at the track...
