One option is a MSD p/n 84891 dist. which has a crab cap and a magnetic pick up. It requires an ignition box because it contains no module. It has a mechanical advance but no vacuum advance. More details: Chevy Flat Top Pro-Billet Distributor - 84891

Cheapest option is a small cap HEI that's a stand alone, self contained unit.
