Here is a picture of the label on my 65 GT 350. Pat White III here in Dallas, TX restored my original harness 25+ years ago
and I don't know if he reused the original label or not. Car is an early May 65 San Jose car being a Shelby has no back up lights, 5R09K217XXX
Texas Swede

Looks like it got installed over the assemblers ID label

Thanks for sharing

Would suggest red is a pretty safe guess based on when the car was built and the options

Results of the survey up to today

This is the second version. In this one I separated the coupe and fastback models and another pattern starts to appear but its easy to see more examples would help

....add another to the Red column for a San Jose Fastback. Without backup lights, Oct 1964 build date, 5R09K14xxxx.

...and yep, that's the original wiring & label with a pigtail repair.  The original covering is pretty much gone in this area.

Well the survey is tilted that way since I have collected Shelby pictures also so that give a tilt to the limited results since they didn't come with the option
