In that Neat '64 Line Pic you can clearly see the Prestolite, Maroon, Radio Resistant OEM Spark plug Wires. :!:

I may have NEAR to, the ONLY NOS V8 Set left in existence now. :ohmy:

Here is another Rich - don't even remember where I saw them online, but made sure I saved a copy of each...

While we are so delightfully off topic: I was floundering around trying to figure out how to make some new plug wires look like that. Ended up spraying red Plasti Dip from the hardware store on them; got a very nice dull red look just like in the above photo and it is sticking real well.

That is probably true. In my experience, those wires did not last long (not as long as most other good wires) before they had leakage. I changed a lot of them and left the last of them in my last home's garage (1991).
