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.
