  • Optima® ALUMINUM BATTERY BOX

    O’BRIEN TRUCKERS has just acquired the tooling for the Optima® ALUMINUM BATTERY BOX formerly produced by Bitchin Products, featuring a finned top and smooth, soft lines. It’s the only cast aluminum battery box on the market, and it’s so beautifully-styled that you’ll want to leave your trunk open to show it off. The box is designed for use with the Optimaâ side-post battery; dimensions are 11-5/8”long by 8-5/8” wide, and 9-5/8” high, and it’s made in the USA. It can be mounted in a variety of ways, with mounting bosses provided on the sides and bottom.

    The cast aluminum box comes “as cast”. You can paint or powder coat it, or you can order it fully polished as a special option. It ships out with a complete installation kit that consists of an inside crush pad, the electrical connectors with rubber color-coded battery boots, and installation instructions.

    The price is $200 each unpolished, or $350 polished. Check it out on O’BRIEN TRUCKERS’ new website, along with all their other period-correct nostalgic products. O’BRIEN TRUCKERS, 29 A Young Road, Charlton, MA 01507 508-248-1555. www.obrientruckers.com
