Which battery is right for '71 280se?

Hello-

Nobody around here can tell me which battery size is right for my 1971 280se. The books at the parts stores only go back to the 80's, and the Mercedes dealer could just tell me it's 70 amps...not the "group size".

An auto parts store told me it's a group 47, which I bought and is about a third the size of the tray.

What should I really have in there?

James

Bite the bullet and go the the Dealer and get a factory battery. I have seen problems with arftermarket batteries. None fit correctly and I have seen a battery short out on the hood when the hood was closed for the first time on the new battery.
