Our sponser Ground Up Restorations www.ss396.com carries them, as do most other aftermarket companies. You have to specify a few details to them to get the correct harness for your application.

The cheapest place is from Painless Wiring. http://www.painlesswiring.com Expect to have to do alot of modifications as these systems are kind of generic. You can get 10 to 18 circuit systems.

If you want an original harness you can get them from any of the camaro restoration houses.(You can also get the painless wiring harness from most of them as well). Most of these places sell M&H harnesses. http://www.wiringharness.com/ These are probably double the price of the painless systems but they are identical to your original wiring harnesses and literally plug into the rest of your harnesses in the car.

If your good at wiring you can go the painless route, but if not get the original style harness from M&H.

I doubt it.... I'm sure the A/C car will need extra wiring for the A/C equipment, where the non-A/C harness will not. I'm sure they're two different beasts. If you order from one of the aftermarket joints, CALL them first to make sure you get an engine harness for a '69 A/C car.

The A/C harness is an additional harness added to the regular under dash wiring harness. It pokes through a 1 1/2" hole in the firewall and connects to the blower motor relay and blower motor resistors. There is one a couple of other wires that connect to the compressor and a direct power feed with a 25 amp fuse that connects to the horn realy that powers the blower motor in high speed. All fuse boxes (ie there is only one) are the same in 69 Camaros no matter what options were added. Fuse box itself might be the same from 67 to 69, but they are definately the same within the same year.

Yes, the fuse panel is the same. GM cut the brown wire that went to the Non A/C heater control panel in the dash and spliced in the new A/C harness at that point. The instructions are detailed in the AIM under RPO U17 Page A2 and also shown (if you know what to look for) under RPO C60 Page E4, and E9.
