Go with the Pertronix I installed one in my 57 Willys. It was worth the money.

That kit is for renewing/upgrading an HEI distributor. It won't change a points distributor into an HEI, though.

If this is a street car, another option is to just use an HEI distributor. Wire in the HEI (the HEI needs full battery voltage), and you're all set. New HEI distributors are available online for around $120, a good used unit may cost much less.
