67 Shelby headlight wiring harness?
« on: February 27, 2019, 09:34:47 AM »
building a 67 GT500 tribute and buying all new wiring harnesses.  For the front headlights, can anyone answer do you need the 67 with Tach, with foglamps... or the 67 with Tach, without fog lamps?  Or does it even matter?

Sorry, should be able to figure this out, but havenít yet and about to order all wiring.  Any help appreciated.

  I don't know but don't forget the white scotch splices.

No fog lamps on a 1967 Shelby.

If you need a quote on wiring, please send me a note

tach yes - fog lights no.

See "1967 Shelby GT350/GT500 Master Assembly Manual" page 19 for diagram of how to splice-in grille mounted high-beam lights with connectors mentioned above.  Pig-tails for doing this are available from a number of sources as posted in reply #2 - Pete is one.

Thank you all for your quick advice.  Trying to keep as close to original wiring as possible so years from now I can refer to Ford/Shelby docs to troubleshoot.

I have the Master Assembly Manual... Iíll check out pg19.  Thanks!

If you are running a FACTORY tach cluster all three related harnesses are different. The Alternator, under dash harness and Engine harness that comes from the firewall and runs to the solenoid and the under dash harness are tach only.  The wiring for the inboard or ourboard lamps were white Scotch Locked onto the headlight extension plugs.

I've only seen them attached to the main harness. If ONLY they had hooked to them to the extension harness or created an intermediate plug.

Fixing the main harness when things go wrong at the connectors is really painful.
