Paper Wire Tags
« on: February 22, 2010, 06:12:58 PM »
I wanted to document all the paper tags found on my 66 convertible wiring (see below). I found quite a few but also a few were missing such as the alternator, starter solenoid, and fuse wire for power top. Those that were missing I actually found parts of tags but nothing there was legible. I've taken my guess at what they could be. If anyone has some pictures/comments of what I'm missing I would appreciate you posting them as I am going to recreate my own. I've already created quite a few as most are not available.

Thanks,
Dave

Again Thought I would share

TWILIGHT65.

Awesome information you have provided on this post plus your previous post on "date codes".  Makes me want to go ahead and disassemble my unrestored 66 gt coupe just so i can follow your lead. Thanks for taking the time out and posting this information for me and others to view.

Best regards.

Phill, just trying to share and help others who are looking for information. You see a lot of vendors starting to reproduce tags but they don't always have everything your looking for, Gives someone maybe with a car close to mine in production who doesn't have this info to try and make their own. Also maybe someone has some of the information I'm missing to help me. Hope this catches on.

Thanks,
Dave

Scott Halseth at NPD has been very helpful at getting tags reproduced by ECS that they didn't already have.

I'll be using yours as a guide as I redo my interior and engine compartment.  Lots of my original tags are still there too.. I literally could'nt have a better car to go by since our cars are both Dearborn May '66 Sprint 200 Convertibles.  Mine build date is 18E and yours is 13E ....in May of '66.

I'll see what tags I still have that you haven't pictured yet..

Thanks Dave.  Great work!
