Plug Wire Color was created by eaj564
I need to replace the wires on 2 cars,36 Phaeton and 37 Custom Beverly S/C. Pulling the wires from the Phaeton conduit/tubes more than half are red. This car has not been on the road since the 40s, so am i correct they are original? Red period wires are available but they have either 1 black tracer or 2, black +yellow, or would going with the oak/orange with tracers be more appropriate? Thanks for replies,Eric

HI Eric,
Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I beleive the judging standards will accept either Red(maroon) or Black spark plug wires.

Either black or maroon (cloth). Not red.

Attached are lists of all the component colours around the engine bay that have been around for a long time. Three colours are listed for the plug
wires.
Orange with a red and black tracer has been dropped from the current judging standards. Tim has anything else been changed?

The only thing I would add now is that the body of the carburetor was probably gold cadmium plated when new. Josh had an article in the Newsletter about this. It flaked off rather easily.
