American classic update wiring

I have a 67 camaro that needs a new wiring harness. I was looking at AAW classic update kits and looks to be a good deal. Who has the best pricing on these kits ? They are all over Ebay with ok pricing. Any good or bad with these kits? Thanks Darren

Excellent quality. I rewired my '69 with AAW's Factory Fit harnesses and had no problems with any of the harnesses.

Re: American classic update wiring

I'm thinking this is the way to go. I know it will be a little harder than a factory harness but can't be to bad. But my car is together and running so we will see.

Re: American classic update wiring

ebay, i bought mine from ebay and it was the cheapest on the internet.. i didnt search ebay itself, i searched google, and a buy it now auction came up, and since its in the buyers "store" it doesnt come up in a regular auction because it doesnt have a set end date, so try that, might get about 25-50 cheaper, plus free shipping

Re: American classic update wiring

We have been American Autowire dealers for 20 years when the owners started in their garage. We sell and install them. Doing a few installs as we speak in the shop.

We sell them for $500 and free shipping

I rewired my 68 last year with the AAW kit and I think it is great.
You get all new wire, terminals and connector blocks.
The instructions are good too.
You must have a good crimping tool for the terminals though.

You will see some crimping tools on the AAW website but they have quite a price tag on them.
You see some crimping tools on e-bay that are a little cheaper.

I recommend the ratchet type of crimping tool to get the best connection

Re: American classic update wiring

I recommend AAW's classic update and get it from Frank @ Prodigy Customs, you can't beat his customer service. I used my T&B crimper and dielectric grease. Take you time and test it as you go.

Why do you need to crimp? What is not included with the harness?

Re: American classic update wiring

I am now in the process of rewiring my 68 with this kit and am pretty happy with it so far. I am not as thrilled with the directions but using my shop manual along with it helps me a lot. I am just starting to wire up the interior now. The engine bay was a little difficult for me but it is all in and I hope all correct. I will know soon enough when I go to test it.

Re: American classic update wiring

I'm going with the AAW classic update and from what I understand there are some ends that will have to be cut and ends crimped on. Looking for crimping tool now.
