Default 1953 Ford car wiring

I'm going to need to replace the headlight wiring on my '53 Customline but can't find any stock looking replacement harnesses.

Does anyone here know if the headlight wiring on a '51 Shoebox is the same?
Reason for asking that is because I found stock looking wiring for 51's at Shoebox Central.

I'm a fan of them. Not sure they do later fords. But the 36-38 harnesses were spot on.

Not sure if Concours in Carson City, NV has them but they have a 10% off sale going on through April 25th. They are my go to source for parts for my '54 Ranch Wagon.
