Cool Original 1969 Camaro Harness!!

Back in 1969, what circuit was the chassis harness for the 1969 camaro, NON a/c, NON power windows or NON power locks. I want to have the exact same harness that came with my camaro, and dont want extra wires/fuses. Which of the following would be best for me, that is if these will even work with my 69 camaro?

Also, will they connect with my existing wires, such at my steering column, and heater box, brake switich etc.

ONLY thing i see updated is the headlight connector and the fuse box itself.

Thanks guys!

Re: Original 1969 Camaro Harness!!

The first choice, #5701, appears to be a kit to replace the OE harness, or if building a kit car, street rod, or what have you. It appears to me, this kit is the model you can chose the circuits needed as required. The availability of adding a circuit later in life is there.

The second choice, #6191, appears to be a replacement/upgrade harness for OE harness. It shows it having the steering column column to connect to either brand of OE harness.

Call the vendor and ask them before making a decision.

None of those are exact, but should work if you are good at wiring.

They make exact wiring harness's, but they are in the $500 range.

Do you prefer to spend time or money?

Re: Original 1969 Camaro Harness!!

Neither of your links are what you want if you want to just replace one harness. Your 69 has five basic harnesses:

Dash harness - main harness under dash, has instrument panel, heater control, steering column connector, includes fuse box and the bulkhead connector for the front lighting and engine harnesses, plus connector for front-to-back harness.

Front lighting harness - this the the driver side connector to the fuse box bulkhead, and contains the main power lead to the fuse box, front lighting wires, brake warning light, water temp sensor lead, and horns

Engine harness - this the passenger side half of the connector to the fuse box bulkhead, and contains ignition power, oil pressure sensor lead, idle speed solenoid (if so equipped), starter lead, etc.

Front-to-rear harness - bundle of wires connecting the main dash harness to the rear lighting harness; I believe the dome light for coupes comes off this harness (my 1st gens don't have a roof...)

Rear lighting harness - stop and turn lights, reverse lamps, sidemarkers, fuel tank sending unit, license plate lamp.

If you want to replace just one of the above, you need an OE replacement style, either American Autowire Factory Fit ( http://www.americanautowire.com/Fact...Harnesses.html ) or M&H ( www.wiringharness.com )

If you want to replace them all and want one kit, the AAW Classic Update is the way to go; the kits you linked are better for street rods or for vehicles for which a specific fit Classic Update kit is not available.
