I want to replace my distributor to coil wire on the 35'. Mine is original cloth covered, but has cracks with wire showing thru.

is this a resistance wire or just plain wire. Anyone know where to get original cloth wire? Thanks.

It is a plain solid core (metal core) wire. If you are not concerned with authenticity you can replace it with a modern carbon core radio suppression wire as used on all cars since the mid fifties.

By using the suppression coil wire and regular solid core plug wires, you will eliminate radio and TV interference and not louse up your ignition.

If you are concerned with authenticity the cloth covered wires are available from Bernbaum and other vintage parts dealers.

Thanks, I looked in the Bernbaum catalog and did not see it. I really want to keep the car as original as possible. I will look again. Thanks.
