Battery Options for 1961 Land Yacht

I recently bought a semi-restored 1961 Land Yacht. It did not have the DC system operational. I have a thin box under the front window for the battery(s). The previous owner said it had 2 6v batteries tied together for 12v.
Does anyone know what kind of battery(s) I need? I would assume that 1 12v battery would be best but don't know if they even make one that thin.

Thanks

Size 3EE or 3ET. They are 12 volt and available at farm supply stores (TSC, Big R, etc) or NAPA or Interstate battery.

Thank you so much! I called my local NAPA store and they will have it at the store for me in 3 hours. You just saved me a lot of time! Glad I joined the group!

Good deal. I got mine at NAPA also. I compared specs for all of them I could find, and NAPAs had the highest amp/hour rating. I've been pretty impressed at how long it will run the camper.
