If you're looking for a High Energy Ignition but want to maintain your Corvette original tach drive distributor, this Ignitor kit is for you! This kit replaces your 1956-1961 2x4 Corvette's stock points (dual point) and condenser with a solid state electronic module, using a stock or high output points type coil. All components are integrated into your stock distributor, no ugly black boxes or complicated wiring. Includes complete instructions, installs in 1 hour. You'll never change points again in your Corvette.

The Ignitor II senses current levels in the coil and adjusts the dwell to maintain peak energy throughout the entire RPM range. Dwell time is increased or decreased with changing engine RPM and operating conditions.This provides more energy at high RPM reducing misfires while improving engine performance.

Gain even more performance with the new flame thrower igntion wires and epoxy coil. Epoxy filled with an output of 40,000 volts, this coil will set your ignition on fire.

How did a big-rig headlight maker turn into a leader in the performance ignition industry? The credit goes to Tom Reh, the CFO of PerTronix in the early nineties. After selling the headlight part of their business, Tom and his team changed the name of the company to PerTronix and focused all their manufacturing efforts on the Ignitor and Flame-Thrower product lines. Today, their systems often look stock, but perform much better than OE ignition systems. Zip features a complete line of PerTronix Ignition products for C1-C3 Corvettes.
