    Need to replace the bad cables on my 72 350. Not happy with the ones currently in the car. Looking for a better pair or NOS if possible.

    Yeah, they don't make them for the 350 anymore. Sucks.

    You might also try M&H Directly as they do sell directly to the public. Maybe a better price?

    Contacted M&H and those cables are produced on demand. $120 for the set.

    I have an original 1969 350 NOS one with some shelf wear if your interested. It has the spring clamps tho so it may not be what your looking for.

    I would have to convert to top posts for those, but won't be correct as my factory ones came with side posts. Thanks for the help though.

    I think the ones NAPA sells will be better than the ones you have and won't cost you crazy money. $120.00 for two battery cables seems like crazy money to me. Or, you could buy some FAT cable wire and make nice ones yourself.

    The key, imo is to be able to verify/confirm length prior to purchase.

    Checked out NAPA too and no luck either. I guess my only options are to make those newer fat ones myself and just convert to a top post, or have the correct ones produced on demand for crazy money.
