Electrical & Wiring

If it’s time to replace or upgrade your 1965 Mustang wiring, and you’re feeling daunted, remember this: It could be worse — it could be a classic British car! Wiring and electrical can seem confusing, but its child’s play on a Mustang when you compare it to how legendarily bad some of the British roadsters from the 1960s were. Ford engineers keep the wiring straightforward and robust, so even if there’s some replacing to do today — over 50 years after your ’Stang rolled off the line — you’ll quickly see that it’s quite manageable. To make things even easier, CJ Pony Parts has stocked an impressive lineup of wiring harnesses, components and accessories for every wiring and electrical upgrade.

1965 Electrical & Wiring

Wires Running Everywhere

When you pop the hood of your 1965 Mustang, you may get the feeling that there are wires running everywhere. But if you take the time to look closely, you’ll see there are really only a handful of different major wiring systems:

• Battery: These are the wires that connect your battery to the engine, including the ground.
• Ignition: These are the wires that run from your distributor or ignition coil to each cylinder.
• Lighting: These are the wires that carry electricity to all of the lights in and outside of your car.
• Gauges: These are the wires that carry information to your various gauges and controls.

One of the best ways to understand your Mustang wiring is to buy a repair manual. Readily available, they will give you tons of insight into your electrical and wiring systems, and allow you to easily diagnose and troubleshoot the different areas that need replacing or upgrading.

How to Know What to Replace

In some instances with an old car, it’s relatively easy to determine what needs replacing. If you find broken or frayed wiring, it’s obvious that it needs replacing. In other cases, however, it might not be obvious. When overhauling a classic such as a 1965 Mustang, sometimes it’s a safe bet to purchase wiring harnesses and kits to replace all of the wiring. That way, you’re sure to be starting with something sound. This is even more important if you’ve planning engine or electronics upgrades, as they will strain the original wiring.
