Distributor cap-side plug wire terminals

I have a '29 Model A street rod with a 350 Chevy and a recessed firewall. Does anyone know of a distributor cap with side-type plug wire terminals to clear my firewall? The clearance problem is at the top of the firewall where the plug wires would normally connect. Thanks!

90º boots and terminals won't give you enough clearance?

In order to use the crab style cap, I think most always you need to have a distributor that is made to accommodate the cap. This if for sure true with MSD distrtr. (been to that dance)
