Flathead Dizzy Part 2

A few weeks ago I mentioned that my good pal Ed sent over a prototype of his new crab style distributor. Essentially, it’s a ’42+ style dizzy using all stock externals, but he modified the point plate to accept a single late model MOPAR point and distributor.

I finally had a chance to slap it on my coupe last week and have been thrilled ever since. Not only does the car run great and still look absolutely period, but I no longer have to worry about those early points closing up on me. Best of both worlds…

And the good news? Ed is starting to make and sell these units to the general public. If you are in the market, send him a PM and he’ll hook you up.
