Does it have an electric in tank fuel pump?

What type of distributor/ignition does it have?

Do you have, or can you get a wiring schematic for it? (I will look through mine)

There are many ways to install a kill switch, with or without having to open the hood.

My choice for something to stop a casual thief, would be to mount a relay that would interrupt the 12vdc feed to the HEI distributor.

Done correctly, it can be fairly well hidden from view, and operated by a hidden toggle switch from inside the car.

The wire that supplies 12vdc to the distributor is marked on the coil cover of the HEI.

I just got my licensce Thursday I'm excited&were suppose to take it to the track next week for the 1st time!
It shows a hell of a lot of maturity IMO to wait to take it to the track to see what it will do. So good and I hope you all have a lot of fun with it!

I have 6 'car alarms' that are perfect anti theft devices. The cars would not start, or either crank over.

The after-market alarm modules made in China, only last about 4 years here.

Here is an example, of what I have wired up. Turn the key on, push in the cigarette lighter, and turn on your running lights, to activate two relays. One wired into the pickup coil, and one wired into the starter cranking wire. With the key in the cranking position only.

There are many ways to do this without using a single toggle switch.
