Default Reproduction wiring harness for ‘66 CH

Looking for input on who makes a nice quality and correct looking harness for a tin cover. Mine is a ‘66 and from what I’ve seen they are possibly the same from 65-69? Looks like Cimarron has a decent price on them but are currently out of stock.

Some input on who makes good ones or even who to stay away from I’d greatly appreciate it.

First, be warned that you will probably have to modify the harness. I have never bought a repop harness that didn't need some modification.

But I have tried several of them, always purchased from ebay, and have been happy with all of them.

Gotcha. I figured even if not perfect they’ll look more appropriate than anything I cobble together. Thanks!

I just got one for my '68 that looks nice though I haven't hooked it up yet.

Call Jay at retrocycle.com the site listed as out of stock but he contacted his supplier and got me one with a week or so

Maybe give Old Dude a try. They list one for a WLA on their site, but what they show there is only a fraction of what they stock.
