    Does anyone sell universal wiring harness kits using cloth covered wire? I would like to keep my truck build looking period correct.

    Thanks in advance.

  3. I bought mine from Sacramento Vintage Ford. Nice kit with good quality wire and loom. Did my own wire diagram using there material.

    Bought American Wire 15 circuit system and bought reproduction cloth wiring bundle stock from Early Fords in San Dimas CA and made up my own harness using original routing and clips for a more stock appearance

    American Autowire sells one. It costs extra,over their other harnesses. Very good quality.

    More for the stocker resto, but Rhode Island Wiring does them as well. They will also do custom harness additions if you're adding stuff.

  7. I looked at one of these at Goodguys this weekend. The demo was really a nice looking unit.

    Ditto on the Sacramento Vintage Ford kit. Complete well thought out high quality wire and connectors. Each circuit is color coded and comes with a diagram. They include a wiring booklet that covers any situation you might find yourself faced with component wise. Lots of extra wire included. Best vintage kit I've seen for a scratch wiring job. And priced fairly.

  12. You can also buy a harness from one of the vendors, pre install it to be sure everything is right and send it to Pacific Conduit and Cable in Glendale, CA. They have a braiding machine, one of just a few in the US. We used to use them to braid harnesses for Austin Healeys before there were replicas available. It's been over 20 years since I had them do one, but they were reasonable back then

    YNZ out of Redlands CA does a great job and can make you everything you'll need.
    It will be period correct and is color coded and almost idiot proof for installing.
    Google these guys, they do great work and you wont be dissapointed.
