Ebay score - original spark plug wire set

I bought these off of Ebay thinking they were an AC Delco replacement - and they are original plug wires!
They must have been sitting in the guy's warehouse for years.

Quick, re-list them on eBay. I heard a collector kit is going for over a grand now, I bet these will too. Lol

Re: Ebay score - original spark plug wire set

That is the same part number as the later AC Delco replacement sets - so if you see one listed on Ebay - it is more then likely one of the later replacement sets. The replacements are black with gold lettering.

Do the replacement sets work as good as the original? Do the replacements have the same TTA lettering just in black and gold instead of black and white?

I know Scott is working on making replacement sets too. I just had mine replaced on my project TTA and we couldn't find a replacement set like this. So they are red, If I can find some of these I would rather replace them.

Does anyone know the ac delco number for the original set's of wires?

Great score, 2 of my sets are in the 616N boxes, most people think that is the box for the standard set only.

The original insulators are becoming very hard to find also. Got some NOS
ones a while back for another set of TTA wires, they were very hard to find.

Re: Ebay score - original spark plug wire set

Is the AC Delco part number "616N"?

What is "12073997"? Is that the GM part number?

Are the the same thing?

All the sets I have are with the white lettering and none are with black and gold, so that is a good thing.
