It is from a local mom and pop flooring shop. I am sure it could be found at any flooring places

Benjamin, My floor has a 'rise' in the center of the floor, running front to back. So you may want to see if your floor does also, and if you need to make any modifications to give yourself a level surface?

I was excited to realize I had an original battery box.......then I removed the lid to find some custom work done by PO. It looks like he used his teeth to remove the right side of the box

Too bad. Occasionally people sell the old boxes here. Usually it is the top that is missing, so you may be ahead. You can also buy replacement sealed battery boxes. Functional trumps original.

Mr. Benjamin,
Maybe prior owner was this guy?
Jaws - James Bond 007 Wiki

Mr. H. Mike graciously gave me a battery box, I was missing mine, so I really appreciate your surprise/concern!

On the plus side it could be ready for a group 31 with a short fiberglass extension riveted to the original case!

Good point. It wouldn't be too hard to repair it. Maybe with fiberglass cloth and resin.

The battery box will be in the classifieds soon. I will just replace with a new one. Function over form at this point. On a side note just took off the wheels and they are in the truck heading to be blasted and powder coated then some new rubber. Any guesses to what color they are headed?

I bought Greenball tires from Costco. I think they were 185 width.
