I needed one so I thought about buying this but I'm too cheap.  By doing some serious scrounging down at AutoZone, I built the exact duplicate of his cable (pictured above)for way LESS than half the price.

Was that offered by Atlas Obsolete?  That is about what he sells his for.  I bought one for the '62.  He was the only guy making them at the time.  I paid $115.00, and that was before 2003.

On the C Barge NY'er I had my cable made locally.I had it fabbed out of 1 guage wire and factory looking terminals to handle all the electrical demand of a fully optioned C.
During the 440 rebuild in 2004,I handed them my old cable for length and reference.
I have not had anybody point out that it was not "correct" despite the mammoth sized cable going to the starter. 
Cost?? 44.00
