1948 Ford F1 Project

Hi, I just bought a 1948 Ford F1 short bed pickup. The truck has had numerous owners. The body in in great shape. It came with most of the trim and rubber to take care of the exterior. Interior has been slightly modified, and rewired. The guy I bought it from has done very little to it. At some point someone rewired it for a ford 460 Ci engine, and converted it to twelve volts. There are two long battery cables running into the cab for the battery there.
The transmission is a c6 automatic. When the last owner purchased it 6 years ago it was driving and running. Unfortunately it has been sitting since then. So I thought I'd try to fire it up, but it is missing the coil at the moment. I just posted and inquire as to what coil to buy, and what battery, and any wiring advice that may be out there. Thanks, Steve(Stovens)

Is it standard or electronic ignition? Either way, most any old style standard coil should suffice to get it running. It doesn't even have to be from a Ford. Don't waste money on something like an Accel coil, they're junk anyway. If this is a driver that won't see extreme RPMs, a good stock replacement coil will do nicely.
