Anyone know a source for original spark plug wires for 1958 Imperial


the original wire set was solid core I believe, the packard 440
wire sold at NAPA is still solid core and the correct diameter to
fit the bakelite boots.

As far as I recall, (60s and 70s) replacement wire sets DID not
come complete ready to use.  the user needed to salvage the
bakelite boots and reuse them on the new wire set. SO the
wire set needed the terminal crimped on after sliding the
boot on the new wire.

I DO have an OEM original 1957 set of EIght (8) wires to get
the proper lengths for the plugs, just don't have the correct
length for the coil wire.
