    Found some on-line retailers for the 'mopar' style terminals.
    A couple places call them Packard 58. Need to confirm what covers.
    Only thing I don't like is one place claim the one covers 3 wire sizes; and the other place skips 16 AWG, and the third only carries one size?
    Eastern Beaver Open Barrel. Scroll down.

        Good info. especially for Canadians.
        Here's the link to Pico's page for Packard 58.
        Pico of Canada :: Products
        Sales page says are a distributor of products thoughout Canada. If your jobber can get that, they probably can get anything Pico carries.
        The Repair Connector Store terminals are listed as Pico, so that's at least one US retailer.

        I was planning to redo the bulkhead connectors and bought all my pieces on ebay. I think from 4 different vendors to get everything I needed at best prices.

        I already have a collection of 56 series. Waytek Wire had min purchases, so I bought terminals by the bagful about 20 yrs ago.
        Now I'm looking to build a collection of Chrysler types.
        Looks like most are the same as some Ford and GM 'Packard 58'.

        Standard lists the tin-plated brass female terminals as CG49 for 16-14 ga, and CG36 for
        20-18 ga packages of 10. Chrysler part number 384601 regardless of wire size.

        Eastern Beaver linked above has the wider 3/16" terminals, like used on the headlights, but not plated. The originals on my '67 were plated.
        They also have crimps for splicing. That's handy, even if soldering.

          For a removal tool I buy a dollar store nail file and grind it narrower. Buy 2 cuz you will lose one.

            Seems they have a variety.
            Not sure if Chrysler bought from Packard Electric Division or some other manufacturer and the connectors just have a resemblence. I'm starting to pay more attention to original markings, if any. Those manufactured by Packard (later Delphi) seem to marked PED.
            I started to take note of these details when comparing questionable connections on the repop harness with my original from '67.

            Examples:
            Field Connector
            Packard 56 style with retaining dimple (1990s repro Year One harness). Delphi 56 tin plated from Waytek next to it.

            IMG_9164.JPG
            Original 1967 Chrysler rolled style that looks like Packard 58, with Packard-Delphi 56 and a AMP 250 Faston style also from Waytek.
            IMG_9161.JPG IMG_9160.JPG

            Headlight terminals were wider rolled style for the 5/16" spades and tinned or what maybe what Chrysler calls 'silver plated' in the parts book.
            1/4" terminals on the right for comparison.

              Actually learned something btoday, Only thing I ever noticed is some have that spring type tab that puts pressure on the spade and others don't.
