Look into American Autowire new Classic update kit! seems pretty straight forward and includes everything needed. and have great customer service and a 20 minute rule that means if you can't figure it out in 20 minutes call and they will help you through it. I can't tell you how easy it is to do, but looks to be simple enough for someone with alittle no how should be able to do! It looks good and fits great and has all your needs covered. My car was used for the fitting tha's why I can't say how hard it was to do! Hope this helps!

I also vote for American Autowire when you replace the wiring. I would replace all the wires and do it once and for all. If the wires are original from 65, after 45 years they have to be cracked and brittle. They have a complete kit to do everything including a new fuse box.

I got all new original wiring harnesses for my 67 Just plug and play. I have not installed them, but how hard can it be.. All the plugs and wiring are an exact replacement... If you have to make up the harness yourself then it would be alot more work.

Yeah Nick.... I know the feeling... the more you look the more you find... The bad part is the more expensive it get's. But what else can you do and have this much fun? good luck with wiring..
