Default Battery motor connector

Hi All,
Any idea what type of connector this is in the images?
My DPI Ski Nautique has been in storage for many years, and I need a battery. It is supposed to use a 7.2V NiCad but those are no longer available. I looked at a Venom 7.2 V NiMH but the connectors (EC3, Deans, Traxxas) that come with it didn't fit the DPI motor. I need help please.

My very fuzzy memory said that might be a Tamiya proprietary connector. I did a search for that term, and found these images, which look similar (to me):

I didn't search further, so if you need that connector type, you will need to find a source. I probably had a set or two in my parts box 15-20 years ago.

Yes, shaking off the years, that sounds right! I had forgotten that name. It was frustrating trying to find a battery with the proper connector. Wow, thank you so much Outrider6!
