I bought one a couple years ago, and suddenly it's went bad. I kept it in a car and started it on occasion. (disconnected when not in use)

I must've lost all info from the battery. I beileve they're out of the Cincinnati area.

I’m in the process of gutting my nine year old Axion Turbostart for an Odyssey conversion. Axion went bankrupt in 2018 which is a damn shame cause this thing was built like a tank and was still going strong at 9 years old. I bought it from Summit in Jan 2011.

I killed the batt on purpose cause I was getting nervous about its age, it was a group 27 and weighed...get this.....58 pounds. Unreal. Damn fine battery.

Oh well, the case is nice, and will live on.

True: It's called Antique Auto Battery in Youngstown, Ohio

https://www.theoldcarguys.com/resources/listings/aab-antique-auto-battery/

But if you go on Google Maps, it shows that it's closed permanently and it also shows "Jim Battery Manufacturing Co"

So I'm wondering if Jim took over the business and if he kept the same business model. ???

Attached is a screenshot from Google maps to support my facts.

- Green arrow pointing to Jim's.

I've had one for probably 10 years....died several years ago. Rather than toss it, I took a shot at turning it upside down for a couple of weeks, charged it and it's been OK since. Don't think it was ever excessively low on water, added a small amount to top off, nothing improved until it got flipped upside down.

I don't think I would want a repo battery.... I mean yeah, they have gone way up in price these past couple years.... but I haven't yet had to make payments on one. I need to get to work still, and if my battery gets repo'd overnite, I can't go to work.

This might be a better option:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Mopar-Battery-S27M-red-1966-74-Caps-kit/312326370230?

This seller has kits for green, yellow and red caps, along with matching decals.

Those are the Axion Turbostart. They went out of business in 2018. As I posted above, I just gutted a 9 year old one that was still working. I would have paid $250 for one in a heartbeat. Bought mine from Summit back in 2011 for $200.

It was a pain in the ass to gut, really well made.

Have several friends that race in the Factory appearing stuff.They take your shot OEM battery and install a new wave dry cell battery inside the case and save a chitload of weight whistling

I find it astonishing that no one has stepped up and started reproducing repro batteries. Most people I know in the hobby would love to have one under their hood. More astonishing is that at $380 a pop (the last price I paid for one), companies who made these went out of business.

^^^ Market size, probably...or Chrysler licensing fees...
I wonder why, since we can get tops and caps and decals, someone doesn't make an upper case (top & sides), so everything visible looks correct ?
I'd think $100-$125 for that would sell.
But again, FCA will want a cut...and how many could that someone sell ?

I'd like to do the modern-battery-in-old-case deal, but the acid & acid-soaked insides are stopping me.

Rural King has flat topped group 24 and 27 batteries so I ordered a couple of sets of the eBay stick on caps and they look pretty good at a glance. The eBay caps are from Europe so maybe they are skirting copyrights so better to order now than wait.

Don't trust Google! It said the same thing about another shop I know and it wasn't closed! Google tries to make those businesses pay them to show they are still in business. Try calling.
