Try Whitney or one of the sites that is dedicated to 1950s and earlier cars. Good Luck, Rick

Just to clarify, I'm not talking about plug wire. I'm looking for the 16 gauge stranded electrical wire.

I thought their amp ratings were higher than normal especially when they talked about the wire not disapating heat like plastic coated wire. JMHO

These are modern wire with a plastic coating under a single layer of cloth. I'm using it for a kill switch on a walk behind. Very intermittent use!
