You can google vintage auto wiring and you'll find several sources. Here's multiple sources listed at one site: http://www.vintagepartsource.com/electrical__wiring.htm. One of the listings from that site: riwire.com.

I bought my harness at YNZ's Yesterday's Parts. They also sell wire and wiring components. You also have Road Island Wire. Cloth covered harnesses are expensive.
