Cloth verses Plastic Wiring Covers

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to build some documentation on this.  What years did the auto manufacturers switch from cloth covered insulation to plastic on their wiring.  Also, what years did they switch from cloth wrap to a plastic wrap?  Photos of original cars will be a plus.

I have noticed 53 Chevrolet cars with cloth or plastic covered wires  and though maybe early 53's had cloth and later 53's had plastic covered .

A  lot of cars switched to plastic insulation when the went to the twelve volt  system. 1956 for a lot of cars, earlier for GM.
