Newer than 1964 Distributors will not fit the 394.
The best thing you can do is go to a PerTronix Ignitor Point Eliminator kit and toss the Points-condensor & get a better coil.

I looked for Headers also....NOPE. It would cost w-a-y too much $ to have them custom made. Use Factory Duals and add DUMPS. It looks cool also...as in the Old days!
