Who is a good source for Lasalle 322 spark plug wire sets?

How authentic do you want them to be? Originals were braided cloth wrapped cables with unbooted 90 degree connectors.

Right now it has solid cable with 90s and no boot but no cloth.
This is a very nice just restored 40-5019 it is close to authentic but by no means a show car.
In the engine compartment I have heat wrapped the exhaust manifold with heat fabric to help with heat issue and there might be a couple other things that are wrong.
It's a beautiful car and I love driving it but it is just a driver.

Nothing wrong with that…Makes total practical sense.


It's a beautiful car and I love driving it but it is just a driver.



That's what it's meant to be….Enjoy your car no matter what it looks like, or what others think of it.  Old cars are meant to be driven, not tucked away in your garage or put on display.

On my LaSalle I run black silicone rubber copper core wires with a 90 degree boot at the plugs.

They were a universal set that I bought on Ebay. They had modern looking writing on the wires, but that can be removed with a rag and some silicone spray.

They look good and work very well.

I decided to bite the bullet and went to McVeys today and paid 100 bucks for a set.
They look exactly like the old ones.
