The old system is usually a combination of Motorolla, Prestolite and some AC- Delco. It is very easy to convert, 6-volt wires are twice the size needed for a twelve volt system, just replace the bulbs with 12 volt and put a Volt-a-drop resistor (12-6volt) on the dash guages. If you have a heater motor it can be swapped for a 12 volt and the starter will even work if you put a 12 volt solenoid on it. Just don't grind on the starter all the time!! Been there done that!!
