I'm in the process of restoring a '63 Traveller. Car is stripped of engine and interior, ready for paint. I've been thinking about replacing wiring harness with new, however, there are so many choices (ESM) that I'm getting a bit confused as to the correct one. The electrics on the car were all working, however, much jury rigging took place with previous owners. Are these new available harnesses color coded as original, are they tagged in any way to assure proper connections, any other considerations to help me decide whether to do this, and if I do decide to replace the harness is there any advice I should take?
You all have been amazingly helpful in the past. Ron

The replacements should come with the same color coding and with such few wires, reconnecting is quit easy. However, 63 is in the transition years so confirmation of the equipment is necessary. I see the fresh air hole in the bulkhead and two sets of tail lights, so the later non-8-way relay harness will do the job. Trafficators were gone by that time so there is no difference between home market and USA. You just need the longer harness for the dipper switch to get over to your left foot. It's a plug-in, separate harness..

Ask the vendors those questions Ron.
