New reproduction 1971 Corvette rear body wiring harness assembly with fiberoptic sub assembly. Fits 1971 Corvette with factory alarm system. The rear body wiring harness attaches to the main or dash harness, routes down the driver's door sill and connects all components in the rear body area to the main harness. The rear body harness connects the tail lights, back-up lights, license & side marker lights, fuel meter, rear compartment or glove box light, door ajar switches, alarm horn, alarm system relay and seat belt warning system as required. Includes fiber-optic sub assembly routing from shifter console to rear light housings.
Factory wiring harnesses originally supplied with your Corvette had a 10 year service life. How old is your Corvette's wiring? 20, 30, maybe 40+ years. Original harnesses were made with copper strand housed in plastic. Over time the plastic deteriorates, becoming brittle and cracked, allowing moisture to get into the wire, which in turn causes the copper to begin corroding. Corroded wires lead to short circuits with the possibility of an electrical fire. Why gamble on the condition of an old harness to save a few bucks?
Zip Corvette provides the Corvette owner with the most correct wiring harnesses available. All harnesses are hand assembled in the USA, guaranteed to fit. Harnesses feature correct wires that match factory color codes and gauge size, but are made with Cross Linked Polyethylene type GXL wire which is much more tolerant to heat than the original PVC type GPT wire. Connections are dip soldered (where applicable) to eliminate resistance loss and feature reproduction connectors and terminals. All harnesses are wrapped with correct non-adhesive or cloth woven tapes to assure a 100% factory appearance.
