You can't get an original looking battery, unless you want to spring for one of the repop batteries. Do a search on the forum... many seem to think the repops don't last more than a year or two. You can get a delco that is close, and put a battery topper on it. Topper is available from some resto houses, and looks like the top of an original R-59. There's a high cranking amp Delco, that I plan to buy. You need to make sure the pos and neg are on the correct sides, and line up. I have a topper, and tried it out. Topper is a little too big, but it'll be OK.
