Default What is this?

When I was a teenager in the 80's my Dad and I hit alot of auto parts stores and dealerships looking for Model A Parts. I came across wiring harnesses that I think go with a Model A. Can you folks take a look at the pics and advise? Also what do you think they are worth. These are "new" and not ever placed on a car.

The switch looks like a quality part, most likely a Ford made part.

Wiring harness is for the H type headlights used through early 1929. The switch body is for the later Twolite system.

Nevermind, I was wrong. https://www.fordbarn.com/forum/showthread.php?t=58468


That wiring harness is for the twolite setup but it has the less common contact plate. Not a clue what they are worth.

New, the light switch sells for around $45. & the wire harness around $55.00. These are quality items in Bratton's catalog.
