The included set of RED wires will work on 1968-1974 Cadillac 472 & 500using the HEI (male tower) distributor that is also included in this listing. These wires have a straight spark plug boot which is popular for the Cadillac 472 & 500.  Also these grey spark plug boots are high temp boots that can withstand 50 degrees more heat than a standard spark plug boot.  These wires are made in the USA by PACKARD WIRE CO and are 8mm High Performance, 270 ohm/foot, Spiral Core Spark plug wires.  These wires are already factory assembled on both ends so you do NOT need to cut to length.

This also includes ONE, not two, coil wires. The photo shows 2 different coil wires (for you to reference). Both have one male end and one female end. Please contact us to let us know if you want a straight or 90 degree boot on the male end of the coil wire. If a coil wire is not selected, we will send you the coil wire with 90 degree boots on both ends.

For over 100 years, MADE IN THE USA! These High Performance wires only have 270 ohms per foot.  The less ohms, the more performance.
