Hey guys.

Was I seeing things, or have I seen pictures somewhere of a coil on a Mopar engine that was tan colored with a yellow cap?

I was getting ready to paint one that color, but now I can't find pictures of one anywhere.

 

Or was it yellow with a tan cap?

 

Help!

Aftermarket maybe? Started in the trade mid 70's, remember tan distributor caps, black coils, can't remember yellow topped Mopar coils. Yellow topped Ford coils, yes, but IIRC no Mopar coils. I'll probably be proved wrong...

Tan COIL ?

 

Never on a mopar. They're always black ( lettering color on said coil is usually a light green, but some have been found with yellow lettering)

 

That said;

Tan dist caps started showing up 1966, MAYBE ,,,,just MAYBE very late 1965. But by part number the tan cap arrived in 1966

 

Distributor itself is black body if dual point ignition system.

bare aluminum body if single point system

Single point dist body with correct tan cap

Okay guys.

I was pretty sure that it was not a factory thing, but it's really not necessary for this build anyway.

 

 

I'm assuming that this is what I was thinking of.

I thought it might be nice to add a little extra flash to the engine.

My 2cents.

Your not trying to build replica stock.

So all bets are off.....build it the way you like.

My gut tells me its going to be killer either way

Yup.

Yes, I'm using one of his pre-wired distributors, but I wanted a standard coil that mounts to the intake.

Just wanted to add another splash of color under the hood. ;)
