I don't know how much you want to spend, but if your looking for cheap check out the petronix ignitor II system. It replaces the points in the original distributor with a solid state ignitor and a 45,000v flame thrower coil. It installs in a few minuets and works great. I'm running this set up in my 65 and it works great and has been very reliable. It also allows you to keep your original distributor if that is important to you.

Dirt cheap Ignition

Oh though I walk through the valley of the rice, I fear no turbo, for torque art with me.
