The wiring colors may vary from year-to-year, but that Ford charging system used the same external regulator for many years. Some of the early versions used contact points inside, but the replacement electronic versions are completely "backward compatable".

I just posted this in a thread a few days ago:
HEI Distributor and Alternator, ford 460

The wiring diagram there is from a 1979 F150 ... but it's very typical.
