sparkplug wire boots for 289
« on: May 08, 2017, 03:51:00 PM »
Anyone seen any Autolite marked black or orange boots on very late 66 production engines (unrestored of course)? The change over was supposed to be in 67 according to the books but you know how that goes.  ::)

Have FoMoCo boots as late as 6R2313xx (radio resistant).

I answered my own question and found a vintage picture of a early 67 Shelby early Oct 66 build with Fomoco on the boots. Although possible very doubtful that there were any Autolite marked in 66 given that evidence .
