Restoration Battery is one frequently cited source.

I'm also sure other suppliers exist.

Hope this helps.

Try www.antiqueautobattery.com. They have your battery. For others, who want an antique battery apperance, such as '53 era and more, I can provide authentic looking decals for the face of your modern battery. Just remove the existing decal and degrease before application, it displays very well. I'll try to add picture of my old one, a little greasy by now.  Art Woody

Looks like one is not going to fit. 60K is 13'' wide  and G27 is 12'' wide. Better measure your tray. Art Woody
