Can anyone tell me where the battery is located on a 1937 115c (1088)?

It should be under the drivers side of the front seat. You will need to lift up the bottom cushion from the front. You should see a rectangular shaped cover plate over an opening in the floorboard. Battery is suspended on a sheetmetal carrier below the plate.

On the sheetmetal carrier and cover plate, sometimes battery acid has done quite a job on the carrier and it needs to be replaced or the cover has gone missing. John Ulrich has repro pieces for the regular battery and he also has made some special carriers to hold an Optima battery for those wishing to go with that type. https://julrichpackard.com/battery.htm
