Interstate battery still available for SC?

Was gonna buy an interstate battery but when I went to their website and used the “find your battery” tool using my year make model etc. it said no product available for this car

Anyone experience this?

I have a Diehard battery and it has been great for 9 years but with no Sears here....I don’t want another one

any other suggestions for a battery for an SC? I’ve read all the battery threads. They are all pretty old by now.

Interstate is big in the Northeast, and often sell through small repair shops, in addition to selling to car dealerships. I bought an H6 for my SC a couple of months back for approx $160 from a local (old fashioned) garage. Best, John/CT.

Hmmmm....I'm intrigued. Just looked at their corporate website and it shows MTP-48 available with MSRP of $174.95. I think it's available.

Interesting. Not only have I not been able to locate them on the corporate website but I’ve read on other sites including ferrarichat where guys mentioned them NLA.

I’ll inquire with interstate

Seems pelican thinks a picture of a deka battery is competition.

Autozone T6-DLG. Fit my 82SC like a glove and spins it over with authority. The one I got was made in Germany.

I've been running the Odyssey PC680 with a Rennline mount for over four years. Saves a ton of weight and never had an issue with it. I just put a fresh one in with a new alternator a few weeks ago. A 925 is not quite as small and powers my wife's 997 just fine.
