The seller would almost have you believe that the Autolite is an original by their statement.

-Fred-


I read that and thought the same thing, but didn't make a comment about it...An AUTOLITE dual point distributor might be found in a scare few of late 1967 K Code Mustangs and SHELBY'S, but certainly not this one, which has a "1D23" date stamp.

These is something else strange here as there should be a vacuum advance mounting provision on the casting and I cannot see there it has been filled in.

This is just the lowest rung of the ladder when it comes to distributors. Probably the worst part is the "C8" casting number.

THIS used distributor is for sale by eBay member " fastmerc " for a starting bid of $650.00.

"Here is something you don't find every day. I purchased this dual point distributor from the original owner that put it in his 68 Mustang or Cougar, drove it a bit, then pulled it before he sold the car. ....some 35+ years ago!!! Put it back in the box, and on the shelf. I've had it on my shelf for 5+ years or so. Time to go...!

This is an "Autolite" casting in beautiful shape, no reman, no bead blasting, just great original casting finish, still with the original box. Still has an Autolite rotor on it too! It has a date stamp 0A26 (Jan 1970) which indicates this was an over the counter part, likely from the FORD Muscle Parts Catalog. This can be seen on page 29 of that book.

It is also referenced in the 1970 Boss 302 Engine Modification book (pgs 18-19) where for Trans Am racing, it says should either use this distributor, or take the guts out and put them in your Boss distributor if you want to spin up to 8K!

Of course, this can still be used on the 289 HIPO and 302 engines from 64-73-ish as well. Just that the date code will not be correct.

The only problem with this unit, is that the wiring insulation has gone hard over the years. You will need to get a new wire from one of the reproduction/aftermarket vendors. There is one crack in this wire, seen in the first picture, right in the middle. Or put some heat shrink over it and just be careful with the wire routing.

This would also go well in any hipo small block Fairlane, Comet, or Shelby cars as well! This will not work in a 5.0L with a roller cam as is. You would need to change the gear to be compatible with the roller cam metal."
