68 RS Taillamp Harness
« on: April 17, 2018, 08:41:49 PM »
On a 68 RS, is the side marker lamp wiring a separate pigtailed harness, plugging into the taillamp harness on each side, or is it one uninterrupted wiring loom direct to the side marker harness. I have two harnesses, basically identical to each other, which came with my basket case, neither one installed, (backup lamp plugs cut off)one harness ends on each side with a 2-prong plug, the other harness is straight through to the side markers.
Does anyone know which is correct fo 68? Is one possibly a 69?
68 - separate harness just for the side marker lamp?
Or 69?

Thank you

Can anyone tell me which harness for the taillamps would be correct for my 68 RS- the version with the unplug-able side marker wires or the continuous wiring feed to the side markers?

Thanks

My 68 RS harness is one piece as well. So, X2

As an aside, just noticed I hit a posting milestone!

I am sorry, but I do not have the car. I parted a 68 SS RS 396 auto BITD, like 35 years ago. I still have the harness's and a couple other odds and ends. There are plenty of 68 owners on here that could be of more help with that question.
 I wish I did know more about that car. It was originally painted orange.
