has anyone just upgraded the fuse block in a 67?

Hi, wondering if anyone has just upgraded the fuse block in a 67? I'm in the process of pulling everything from my car. All of the wiring is intact, and looks pretty good for 50 years.

I see that a couple of places sell complete wiring kits with the updated fuse block, wondering if it's available by itself.

My fuse block on the inside has one of the tabs? broken off, and looks a little rusty.

On a semi-related note, where can I add additional stuff, such as radiator fans and the like?

Thanks,

Jeff

You can run fans off of the buss bar on the horn relay.

If you are planning on a number of accessories like fans, I would consider upgrading your engine wiring as per the MadElectrical.com site. Having replaced the wiring in my 68 I would say replacing just the box will not be ideal since you will have to splice every wire going into the box from inside the car which is quite a few. I think you would be better of replacing it all especially since you are removing it anyway. It is 50 years old after all and manipulating it to take it out and put it back will most likely cause some cracks in the insulation.

Hi Jeff,
If the harness is in good shape and you only need to replace the fuse box then Lectric Limited has a 'repair kit' to replace just the panel. I replaced mine a month ago and I was very pleased with the original look as well as having all the correct spade and/or crimp on terminals. The fuse panel configuration will depend on the cars original options.
Below are pictures of the front and back. Let me know if you want side views too. This was discussed also on CRG. My reply is #12:
