Working under my '66 last night and noticed about 12 inches of single strand coated copper wire that is clipped onto the underside of my gas tank. It runs from front to back and there is only this one short piece left--both ends have either been broken off or cut. I don't know where it comes from or goes to. Everything seems to be working OK so can't figure out what the purpose of this could be. Any ideas?

> about 12 inches of single strand coated copper wire

By single strand, I assume you mean solid conductor. I know of no such type of wire on the Mustang. Could it be a PO had it there as a means of grounding the gas tank? Maybe it's the remains of an old trailer hitch wiring setup.

I concur with Smokin Joe...if it is single conductor wire then it is not automotive wire and is something put there by a previous owner for some reason.

Man, I don't know what I'd do without you guys. Now I'm paranoid.
