Ignition Sheild

Recommended Posts

Does the chrome ignition shield have a purpose other being decorative? 

Can you tell me the reason it is there.

It is used to suppress RF (radio frequency) interference.  The fiberglass body does not do this as a steel body would.  In other words, it is for the radio.

And mostly for the AM radio reception.  Important in '63, but not so much today.

FWIW, the interference would also make noise on the radio of the car next to an Avanti, occasionally causing their smiles to become frowns.
