    Transistors were just becoming available then. I'm impressed someone was thinking of using them for ignition that early.

    Can you imagine building that car for$1500.00 even in 1953. if I could afford it that is the blueprint I would look for. Tom

    Exactly! I was impressed that an individual was already thinking about this application...

    i cleaned out a garage for a developer who had purchased the house cheap from the estate. i pulled a truck load of junk out including a weird gm distributor. it looked like a regular point distributor on the out side but an hei on the inside. we ran the numbers and it was from a 64[?] corvette

    Electronic ignition was an option on Corvettes at that time. But the first to offer electronic ignition from the factory was Avanti in 1961 or 62.
