    If you like traditional looks and reliable, modern performance, you’ll love this cool Flathead "Shorty" 1-wire alternator. It has the look of an original generator, but is really a 12-volt, negative-ground alternator that produces 65 amps at idle and 75 amps going down the road. This model is designed to fit 1949-1953 Ford & Mercury Cars and Ford Trucks with Flathead V8s and features a simple one-wire hookup.

    We offer this one wire alternator in a beautiful chrome finish with included stock-appearing mounting brackets (the stock fan carrier bolts to that bracket) and pulleys that accept wide 5/8” belts.

    • 1.5" shorter than standard generator
    • Easy one-wire hookup
    • 65 amp idle, 75 amp cruise, 90 amp top end
    • 5/8" wide belt pulley included
    • If using 3/8" wide belt, order pulley # 91067178
    • Uses stock-appearing bracket and fan carrier bolts
    • Multiple carb apps, (1) 4 barrel carb
