Starter wiring for mopar/chevy swap

I'm helping a good friend of mine get his '61 Facel Vega on the road again. He's had it for 30 years and wants to drive it again while he can.

I don't know much about the car, but it came with a 383 Chrysler motor. He blew it up a million years ago and swapped in a 350.

My question is how I should handle the wiring for the ignition/starter. The stock set-up has an external selenoid (the common ones on Fords and Mopars). It has two big posts which I assume connect to the battery and the heavy gauge power lead on teh starter. It also has two small long wires coming from the smaller post on the selenoid.

The Chevy starter has the selenoid attached to it so I'm not sure what to connect where.

Any help is much appreciated. I'd love to see him start (and drive) this car again.
