The factory put the battery ahead of the R tail light on later spiders, and I think even put it there on GTV's with A/C. But I have never relocated the battery on a GT to that position, so don't want to say that it should drop right in. Maybe you need to use a smaller battery to make that location work.
The battery in my '65 Sprint GT is located just forward of the right tail light as Jay describes. I didn't do the relocation. It was there when I bought the car in '93. The battery tray and supports are welded in place. That's my recollection but have not studied it in a long time. Wow. That trunk needs a good cleaning.
