This was on my 15,000 mile 1969.  Different part number than posted above.  Can't swear it's original, but sure looks the part.

The presence of broach marks alone shouldn't correlate with being authentic.  Machines like the ones that put the broach marks in at the engine plant still exist today so those marks can be reproduced accurately.  I was offered that service when I had my engine sourced.  I passed intentionally to avoid a future re-stamp forgery.

That looks like rear seat cushion cotton batting.

I don't know where your bubbling is or how extensive the damage, but has anyone had experience with "peeling it back", repairing, then re-gluing?  Would be great if you could keep the original top

I used to own a 66 Fairlane GTA convertible that was black with red interior and white top.  My all-time favorite color combo.  I'm in the "keep the vinyl top" camp.  Your car is absolutely beautiful!

Mine is stamped right near the trans fitting

When the problem disappeared, we were running an MSD distributor and ignition box wired directly to the battery.  In prior attempts to solve, I had replaced both the distributor and coil with no change in symptoms.  That leaves the wiring from the positive side of the coil back to the ignition switch on the column.  Wire from firewall block to coil just replaced, so that leaves the stuff from the fuse box back to the column switch, and I guess the power from the battery to the column switch.  What could go wrong in those areas that only shows up with the engine under load?

Multiple times on the dyno when it stalled, we check the float bowls on the carb.  Each time the fuel level was at the bottom of the sight screw.

I agree Maroman.....does anyone have any tips on where to look next?  Could this be a problem under the dash?  In the steering column harness?  What likely suspects would cause the power to the coil to be interrupted under load?  What I do know is that with a brand new wire, the same symptoms exist, so it likely is not the wire.

Strange, but logical thing about "Uber-rare" parts.  They are only worth jack to the people with the "Uber-rare" car.  I know a guy that has an "Uber-rare" Ram Air II 4 speed carb.  There might be a handful of guys that need that carb.  If you ain't one of those handful, would you pay $4K for a carb that's not right for your car?  Of course not.

My frustration has peaked.....installed a new harness to replace the melted coil wire and the symptoms still exist.  I need someone with a logical mind to help me out.  The symptoms disappeared on the dyno once we swapped out to an MSD distributor and box..  Found the melted wire as stated in the above posts so assumed that was the culprit - apparently not.
Does this mean my root cause issue is "upstream of the firewall connection?
