69 Camaro Electrical...Need Some Help with Restoration

I am in the process of having my 69 camaro restored/re-built. My car was purchased with absolutely no electrical system.

The set up i have is a standard headlight, 427 BB, 4 speed muncie (no console), cowl induction, no air conditioning, Holley 850CFM, no power steering,and warning lights.

Does anyone know what would be the best option? I have checked yearone, classic industries etc. But I am unsure what to get? Any help would be appreciated.

I reccomend American AutoWire's "Factory Fit" wiring harnesses. I rewired my '69 with the "Factory Fit" harnesses and would purchase them again if the need arises.

Welcome to the Club, Dan. Most here have chosen AAW and reading their posts, they have had good luck.

You may want to select options like:
HEI power wire,
Internal regulated alternator, or keep the external regulated set-up and add an electronic regulator, Wells P/N VR715.
Trunk light, for a future install of stereo/speaker amp, just as a Power-On signal.

I got my complete wiring kit from M & H Wiring but I understand the American Autowire wiring harnesses are good too. http://www.wiringharness.com/ Make sure you buy the dash wiring for a non-console car. Do you have an in-dash tachometer and fuel gage in the center?

Im turning the car into a Yenko Tribute. It is going to have a standard fuel gauge, 140 speedo. Im getting the retro Stewart Warner tac on the steering column and other green line gauges mounted below the dash.....

Dan:
Another recommend for American AutoWire.

I've redone most of the wiring harnesses in my '68 and they all went in perfectly. In fact, I wanted a customization on one of the harnesses (right internal regulator alternator instead of left external regulator) and they did it for a few extra dollars. Great company.
