We all know that the T-60 Heavy Duty Battery was a option on the 69 Camaro. Did it come with Top Post
throughout the production year? We know the regular battery changed to side post earlier in the year. Did the
T-60 ever come with side post? If it did when did it happen? Also what was the battery number for the T-60; R59-R59S or??
Thanks in advance--Larry

From the CRG BATTERY REPORT:

Quote
67-69 RPO T60, Heavy Duty Battery: The optional battery was Delco R69, a 70-Ahr battery with top posts. This battery was a taller version (by 3/4 inch) of the R59, with the extra height allowing larger battery plates and hence more power. Unlike the standard batteries, it did not change to a side post configuration in late 69.
