I have never heard of "Kwik wire or EZ wire", but on the various forums I look at American Autowire seems to have a very good reputation for their harnesses and support. I have a 67 Impala SS and am currently waiting for A.A. to release their new Classic Update harness. The latest release date I saw was sometime in May. They have OEM restoration harnesses for factory original wiring. The "Classic Update" harnesses are better for cars that have or plan to have modifications from original such as: elec fans, elec fuel pumps, aftermarket gages and other changes. Contact them to get a better release date and more info.

I use American Wire for stock wiring if I have to buy a complete harness. I use Pain-less wiring for my hot rods and race cars that were gutted of stock wiring to remove complexity and weight.

If you are planning on modernizing your ride (power seats power windows, cruise control along with electric fans stereo or any other power hungry accessories consider multiplex wiring in addition to American Wire or Pain-less wiring.

Just to get the locking door opening key fob would be worth it in my opinion.
