The nature of the group 96 is that it's much shorter in height than just about any other battery. I don't think any other battery will fit the car. I believe Ford placed it on a pedestal, closest to hood as possible, to keep it away from exhaust manifold heat.

group 65 is 7.6 inches tall
group 96r is 6.9 inches tall

Walmart has the cheapest battery and they do stock the 96r and it's around $97. plus core charge.
