side post battery terminals.

Did 1969 Z/28 built after 4/69 have side post battery cables?

Thanks, David

Mine have the original ones too. Just wondering when they switched from top to side terminals.

T60 Heavy Duty Battery always had top terminals, all the way through 1969 production.

Which is it? The assembly manual shows side terminal for V8 and top terminal for 6cyl and T60 top terminal for Z/28, L78, L34, L35, L48 etc.
