Are there any USA made ignition coils left?

I am looking for a quality USA made ignition coil for my stock 69 Bird. It does not have an HEI set up. It appears that Accel and MSD coils are made in China. I was looking at Crane Cam's PS20 and I can't find much information on where it is made. Is the PS20 made in the USA or China?

Made where?

Something actually made in the USA? What a concept! Do you think the idea may catch on?

Possibly the NAPA Standard brand is still made in the US.

Surprise about the MSD as mine has(had?) a 'Made In USA' sticker on it

You can also try a mom and pop parts house. A lot of times they keep it as real as they can. I also second Napa. Its too bad they folded up and moved over an hour away from where im at. They cost a lil more but its worth it. Darn oriley and auto zone ran them off. So I go to mom and pops when it counts.

Ok, I just got off the phone with Crane Cams. The PS-20 is made in America.

A lot of times a stock OEM coil is a pretty good coil, often better quality than brands painted bright colors, with names like "Supercharged Turbo Lightening Blaster Mark2 Flamethrower High Performance" ignition coil.

Go get an OEM coil out of a junkyard.
