I did a search for this and was surprised when nobody has brought this up. Well, I have been thinking up ways to clean the engine bay up, and I want to relocate the battery, and maybe even the silinoid for safty. this is all i can think of, that i would need, please add to my shopping cart.

1. battery box from auto store
2. 2-4 guage battery wire
3. battery cut off (?)

i did a search on the net and couldnt even find kits on this. what would i need? thanks.

i feel like i have no brain.

you will need the cutoff if you run in any nhra or ihra events. it has to be connected to the pos. cable. taylor makes a great stainless steel (i think) box with all the cables and connections you need.

the cost a little more than some of the others but they are worth it. good luck

'65 Shelby's had the spare located on the shelf where the back seat was deleted. The battery was then located on the right side where the spare rested.
I saw one restomod where the inside rear panel was cut in half horizontally and a small drycell battery mounted in front of the right rear wheel. This was interesting but not practicle.
Remember wet batteries in the trunk need to be vented to the outside. Charlie
