Color coded wiring diagram for 48-50 Ford truck
To FatFender Friends:

I found this online and ordered one. It is 11 by 17 laminated and all wiring is shown in the actual stock wiring insulation colors. I think it will be helpful when I aam troubleshooting wiring issues, and especially helpful if I need to be re-wiring anything. Classic Car Wiring: Automotive

I bought mine from amazon, but you can also order it online from

It's $17 but worth it for me.

Good tip Joe. While it was a bit more work, one of the most useful things I did was maintain the original color scheme during rewiring. Troubleshooting electrical issues doesn't involve translation - saving my sorry head further complication.

The Shop Manual and Operator's Manual have B&W diagrams for the color-challenged.

color coded wiring diagram
I got mine yesterday and it looks to be as advertised. I have been using the shop manual wiring diagram to trouble shoot electrical issues. The big color coded one is good for my old eyes anyway.

Been using these for years. Color, laminated, easy to read, hard to destroy.
