How old is your Corvette’s wiring? Chances are, some of you are driving around with a wiring harness that is 40+ years old. Considering that the factory wiring harnesses originally supplied with your Corvette were built for a 10 year service life….you could be asking for trouble.
Original harnesses were made with copper strand housed in plastic. Over time the plastic deteriorates, becoming brittle and cracked, allowing moisture to get into the wire, which in turn causes the copper to begin corroding. Corroded wires lead to short circuits with the possibility of an electrical fire.
Why gamble on the condition of an old harness to save a few bucks?
Zip Corvette’s complete “one box” 1953-1979 Corvette Wiring Harness Packages are the most correct wiring harnesses available and help eliminate the electrical gremlins that often plague Corvettes due to faulty or missing wiring.
All harnesses are hand assembled in the USA, guaranteed to fit. Harnesses feature correct wires that match factory color codes and gauge size, but are made with Cross Linked Polyethylene type GXL wire which is much more tolerant to heat than the original PVC type GPT wire. Connections are dip soldered (where applicable) to eliminate resistance loss and feature reproduction connectors and terminals. All harnesses are wrapped with correct non-adhesive or cloth woven tapes to assure a 100% factory appearance.
