Re: Original wire harness
Depends on your goal. You could unwrap, inspect, repair, and rewrap the old harness for ultimate originality. However, nearly 50yrs is a lot of wear and tear and a short isn't just an inconvenience in some places. The AAW is great quality and uses GXL wire which is markedly more heat resistant. If you're not a numbers-matching guy, the classic update is cheaper and allows you some freedom to modify (like add relays, internally regulated alternator, HEI or efi, gauges) if you want to as it isn't prewrapped with insulation. Personally, I considered it cheap insurance over losing my car to an electrical fire.
