Found a parts book reference to Chevy A body in 1978, all engine sizes. Positive cable 35" long is 12007886.

Further digging shows the following part numbers: 8901443 superseded to 8907028, which superseded to 12007886, then to 12026581. 35" positive cable. Side terminal. All have been discontinued.

There's an NOS 12026581 on fleabay right now but has a black rubber head on it.

Good luck in your search.

Why not make one?
You can get what you need here:

You can get an inexpensive battery terminal crimper like this that works in a vise.

Be sure and get the heavy duty adhesive lined heat shrink. It's super heavy stuff and makes your terminal look very professional.

Do the other end with the proper lug the same way.

Have you checked any pick n pull salvage yard? I could look down here for you but it would be a different year.

B bodies used the same cable. I found one in a '79 Caprice that was the same p/n.

I'll check my stash for you. I know I have a few I just don't know if they are in the condition you are looking for
