Who supplies correct looking plug wires, I am running a modern distributor cap so I need modern plug in at the distributor side?

What color should the wire be and the strip or stripes on it?

This is a correctly restored engine. Contact Marsha at Rhode Island Wiring.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
Be of Good Cheer

The original wires were "varnished" to a very high GLOSS finish. I am not sure Marsha can supply wire with this gloss finish currently (all be it I love her to death and she has made me some of the most stunning wiring harnesses that are on the Globe). Please do ask her though.

I have bought black varnished sets (for several Packards and have been most pleased) and last week received a set for a 39 LaSalle from Narragansett, though was not pleased to see it had right angle verses I believe the proper end would be straight, so back to the drawing board. I bought a Packard 440 set for the 1955 Buick Roadmaster from www.brillman.com - I called on a Saturday morning about 9:00 and they came in the Tuesday mail (great service).

www.brillman.com seems to have a variety of wire styles

Curt has the brass tops for the spark plugs.

When Charles Koch and I did the 31 Phaeton I used distributor cap ends (ex. GM style such as on a later 30's though 50's car) on the wire end that goes in the brass caps.

Also, I have been checking the wires with the ohmmeter to make sure I properly stabbed them in the cap and .....
