Default 1965 Mustang 200 cid Conversion to Electronic Ignition

1965 Mustang 200 cid Conversion to Electronic Ignition

I am the original owner of a 1965 Mustang Fastback (w/64 parts).
It has a 200 cid engine and a Autolite distributor part# 12127

I want to use a Pertronix ignitor, but Pertronix does not make one for this distributor.
I found a place called Hot Sparks:
Hot-Spark Ignition Products: Electronic Ignition Conversion Kits, Distributors, Ignition Coils for VW, Volkswagen, Porsche, Audi, BMW, Volvo-Penta, Mercedes, Saab, Bosch, Ford, Autolite, Prestolite, Delco, GM, Chevrolet, Honda, Nissan, Datsun, Peugeo

They claim to have one for a Autolite distributor part# 12127..
My concern with them is there is no way to contact them except paying for it and email.

Q: Any members out there with any experience with Hot Sparks:
Hot-Spark Ignition Products: Electronic Ignition Conversion Kits, Distributors, Ignition Coils for VW, Volkswagen, Porsche, Audi, BMW, Volvo-Penta, Mercedes, Saab, Bosch, Ford, Autolite, Prestolite, Delco, GM, Chevrolet, Honda, Nissan, Datsun, Peugeo
Q: Any suggestions on how to convert my Mustang to electronic ignition?

Any thoughts are welcome by me..
Thanks
roy

I would hesitate in doing business with someone that doesn't list a phone number. I found that even their web server's ID and owner is hidden. There's something funny about people that do business and want to hide something. There's a reason and it's probably because they're a rip off.

I would check with Ford Six Performance www.fordsix.com or Clifford Performance www.cliffordperformance.com

I would call pertronics and ask them if anything they have will work. Sometimes it may mean a small modification to an existing unit to make it fit, but other than how they mount, I think all the 6 cylinder units are very similar, can't hurt to ask and they have a pretty good reputation.

I think Acell makes a point eliminator kit too, you could check with them.

Nolan Speed makes a great suggestion Pertronix helped me with an install on a 67 Olds so I could keep my stock distributor cap. Give them a call or e-mail.

Default If it is hard to get in touch with Pertronix....

If it is hard to get in touch with Pertronix -or they might not be familiar with your particular application -
Call Matt at Ponderosa Mustang
PonderosaMustang.com

(850) 857-1084 or FORD6566@cox.net

He has better prices on Pertronix stuff than I have seen anywhere - straight up guy, too - he probably knows which unit you need.

Thanks for the input.. From everyone. You have confirmed my thinking that HotSparks can take a hot leap at a rolling doughnut..

I will be checking out the suggestions put here and calling Pertrionix as soon as California wakes up..

I will come back and post the outcome when I get this resolved ether way.
Thanks again
