1963 & 1965 Distributor

Hi all I am looking to have an aftermarket distributor made for these year models. I have fitted a Holley Sniper to my 63' 390 & want the Sniper to control the timing.This is in the very early stages so I am looking to see if it is viable. I understand the purists might see this as sacrilgious but the Sniper has made my car soo much better for me. I am asking to see if there is any interest?See More
