What battery is being used in the 85-86 Turbo Coupes since Motorcraft is no longer producing the correct one.

Just bought a Motorcraft battery in Nov. for $140.  Part No. BXT 65 850.  It's about the same size as the original for an automatic which I believe is a little larger physically
than the one for a 5 speed.

I have been using group 65N batteries in both my 88 TC and 86 Tbird 5.0 for years. I use Wally World Everstart MAXX 65N 1000 CCA batteries. Usually get 5 to 7 years out of them. Just replaced the batt in my 86 for $95.
