Just purchased a 67 convertible which is somewhat of a project car. The radiator support needed to be replaced and the previous owner took off the hood, driver side fender, inner and outer and grill assembly and wiring harness to the headlights. I replaced the support, got the fenders, grill and hood replaced. I tried to start the car, key does nothing. Using a remote start, I got the car to crank but not run. Spark is getting to plugs, carb is pumping gas, I was wondering if the light harness needs to be connect in order to start up. Has a crate 350 engine with hei ignition. Have thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Wiring appears to be all original

Not really sure but I don't think so. You can bench start an engine with minimal wiring.
