Red is (hot)
Purple ( sol or ign) ?
Double brown ???

He also has a blue wire ran straight to the coil ( constant dead battery)

What exactly is the question?

As you can see the back of the ignition switch is labeled with where the wires connect. You can find an electrical wiring diagram (or buy a much larger plastic laminated full color copy) on line that shows how the various circuits are wired.

We'll I search and didn't see what the double brown wire is.
And the guy ran a wire straight to the coil. So I don't know why he bypassed.
The first pic is how he wired the ignition for some reason it has no marking and when I moved it everything unplugged so I don't know how it was plugged
The other pics is me trying to figure what wire goes where
So my question is where would you plug those wires to the second ignition. And am I missing a wire from factory harness for the coil. I saw a pic of a diagram but wasn't clear on this

Funny.

I asked Google to find me a 1965 Chevy Impala wiring diagram and it returned 44,900 hits stating that the two brown wires feed the light switch with power for the dome lights.

Look at this page for a colored wiring diagram:

Maybe you didn't make the right sacrifice of a small animal on the oracle of Google's altar.
