Some more stock battery info here on my site:
As to Harry's comment below about Group 24 batteries, the battery itself will fit in the tray and bolt down but the stock non-HD cables won't reach. Corvairs, when equipped with the factory HD battery option, had longer cables installed. A Group 24R is a good choice because it can use stock-length cables but has more "oomph" because it's a larger battery.

A group 24 won't fit a late model.
A group 24R will.
The 24 has the posts at the wrong ends.

•Lates ◦Stock is 22F
◦HD is 24
◦Replacement stock is 26R
◦24F fits better in cars originally equipped with a 22F
◦Note: Be sure the battery has the notch for the hold down clamp. The
Delco 'drop in' for a late Corvair is part #19002100. It is also called a
24R-6YR. Thanks to Erik Nielson for this tip.
Hope this helps.
