Plug a '78 to '90 distributor into it, and do the 'TeamRush' upgrade.

The 'E' core (TFI style) coil will work with points, but it will be REAL hard on them.
If you want information on upgrading that distributor to electronic, so you can fire a mostly modern ignition, get a hold of the PerTronix guys.

You can get a re-man distributor for about the same price, and use all stock parts off the shelf.

That gives you two ways to go....
PerTronix and Motorcraft upgrades.
