My first thought is to replace the wiring, it looks so fragile and dangerous. It’s all original and falling apart. What is your thoughts? Where is the best place to buy a wiring harness?

Jim,

Amazingly that does look original. Most original wiring harnesses are long gone, I haven't seen one like that for years. The reason(and problem)for that is the originals were cotton jacketed rather than vinyl and after years the cotton would become brittle and begin to fall apart, that's where the electrical shorts come from. You've got two options, if you're going the concourse route you can replace it with an original cotton unit, if your smart you'll replace it with the updated vinyl jacket model. Most big suppliers can provide both. Your car, your choice.

Jim,
Give these folks a call. They supply complete harnesses for our cars with the correct color coding and placement. I used them when I restored my car and their harness went in without a problem. They have great customer support and have all the peripheral parts that you could need.
