1967 - 1968 / Re: 1967 FB tail-light wiring harness

I've had back issues all of my life, but it seems to happen more often.

The '75 MPC skips over 67 as far as part numbers goes.
it goes straight to 68 which shows a 14405-A basic part number.

Remember that your taillight label will be different from a 67 Mustang FB label
Why is that? A Shelby wire harness should be a standard fb harness, albeit with a traveler for a trunk light. The Shelby parts are simply grafted onto the harness. The MPC does show a part number for the Shellby/Cougar extensions.

Here is the JPG for a standard dash label and assembly label, if anyone wants to play around with it. It includes text alone, color alone and the merge of the two as well as the assembly label for an early 67 SJ car.

[edit -- use different jpg file for color labels]

The Shop Manuals have a lot of useful information.  Brian

Great example showing how Ford wanted it and my pictures showing how they were installed in real lift.

Thanks Brian

Sorry your laid up - age brings with it pay back for all of our earlier and current choices as well as experiences.

Doing wire labels is kind of fun once you draw all the different logos and figure out/make all the letters and numbers - building a took box of sort that you can mix and match.

All the different colors and types of paper is a pain/film to locate though if you can find them

Remember that your taillight label will be different from a 67 Mustang FB label Correction (thanks to Mr Gaines for reminding me) For this year they would be the same.

Since my back is out and I can't do anything really useful, I decided to start replicating wire labels for my SJ fastback (see sig).

I've noticed a lot of interesting things:
The instrument panel wires have a green FoMoCo label with part numbers and a white assembly label.
The FoMoCo tag is fairly narrow (0.725 or less), so the C7ZB is on one line, the part number of 10B942 is on another.
The assembly label is slightly narrower at about 0.625 and reads:
JAN
DAY
TSX
in a repeating pattern. The text is not straight and could be a stamp. Not sure what DAY means, but it might be the assembler's initials. JAN appears to be for January, since all other items on the back of the dash panel also read 01 or A.
I only mention the instrument harness as it's very well preserved and original.

The main under dash harness is red tape with a yellow label over the top. The assembly label is within an inch of the Ford part number tag. both labels are about the width of the instrument panel labels.

The tail light harness on my 67 fastback was red but has disintegrated and cannot be read. However, what is left is the same width as the instrument panel harness Ford id label.
When I replicate this label it will also be red, have C7ZB on one line and 14405-A on the next.
If I follow the pattern of the instrument panel label for the tail light harness it should read:
TSX
C7ZB
14405-A
FoMoCo in a rounded box
repeat the pattern.

A parts car I have that is within a few thousand VINs at SJ as well and has this label format for the tail light harness, but in white:
S.X. -A
C7ZB
14405-A
FoMoCo in a rounded box
repeat the pattern.

I have found no assemblers tape on any of my tail light panel harnesses, but they are not unmolested like the Paperback Writer harness.

The pics below are from my 67 SJ parts car dated Mar 6 1967.

Clean up around the area that faces out by the ball joint. Should be a two digit code.

Usually on '65-'66 Dearborn pedals, I just find a thin diagonal Yellow paint line or a Yellow paint daub on the back....but the guy who did that one must have been asleep on the job..or really bored...Take your pick..  Too funny.
