oem glass fuses


back in the day I remember replacing fuses in customers cars that were originally paint coded with a different coloured stripes....the recent posting of the vette solved part of my curiosity......20 amp - red......25 amp-white    the rest are unclear......may this post should be bumped to the "purest'fuse-panel.jpg

Although I've seen many a glass fuse...never seen them colour coded like that. Perhaps this was done just prior to the switch to the new style of fuses?

....I do recall them too. think it was probably a certain brand that coded them, maybe it was Buss ?? , but not all brands were color coded. Now you got me thinking and have to go start looking in some of my parts cars what I can find .


 I think they were colour -coded from the factory....replacements weren't        Bob

 If I was an anal 'vette guy, I'd just paint the appropriate colours on my fuses. Who would know?

I can verify only factory installed fuses were color coded. I had a lot of 60's GM's prior to 1980 many of which were completely untouched. I worked at GM dealer parts since 1973 and never saw a color coded replacement.

My 65 CS has coloured fuses but I've never bothered to note the colours.
