Instrument Pigtails 1968

1968 El Camino SS
I may have asked this before but I'll make one last try. I'm restoring a dash with instruments to swap out with the one in the car with idiot lights. I'd like to use the good plastic pigtail connectors that slip over the spades for the tach, temp & amp gages. They would be much better than standard wire connectors. I found one (pigtail) for the speedminder but I haven't been able to locate any for these instruments. The shops that make replacement harnesses are pretty shabby since they won't sell a piece like a pigtail.
It would also be pretty hard to find an old harness in a junkyard.
Anyone know where I could get these?

Pico Wiring has a lot of pigtails and OEM connectors.

Just us know what you find.

Another place to look is in the GM ( ACDelco ) pigtail catalog: http://acdelcotechconnect.com/pi/wir...s/gm/pigtails/

Looks like Pico might have them but they don't have any contact or ordering info that I could find. I sent an email to summitt who carrys their parts. Also american & delco, so we'll see.
Thanks

My local Baxter Auto Parts carries Pico, but I believe that chain is only here on the West Coast.

You might also try:

or

If you have a part number, you might do a search on eBay.
