New reproduction yellow top coil with silver inked FoMoCo stamped and date coded to the date code you specify. We repaint the coil with the correct durable satin flat black catalyzed paint. To make it look even more like factory originals we overspray the lower edge of yellow top insulator.
MCA and SAAC are now deducting for the sticker version so this is a good option if your original coil is in poor condition. Accepted in all classes of judging except in Survivor and Thoroughbred classes.
Specify your cars year, engine, generator, alternator so we can apply the stamp in a location that will be seen when installed.

Selecting a date code tips:
We suggest selecting a date code that is not closer than two weeks before your cars production date. The general rule of thumb is to select a date 1-2 months before your cars actual production date.
Q: Whats not the same as original production coils?
A: The yellow color and finish is really close to originals but not exact. Doesn't have date/mold code in between terminal. Metal sleeve at the top of the coil is not as wide as originals although the width of originals vary.
Q: Are the new reproduction coils as bad as the old ones? My old repro coil crapped out on me after only one summer.
A: So far they seem to be very reliable. I wouldn't expect them to be as reliable as the originals. The manufacture says they perform extensive testing before shipping but time will only tell in the end. I will report any issues as our customers give us feedback.
Q: Whats the earliest Autolite stamped coil?
A: See picture below of a coil we found with an October 1966 date code. Exact change over date from the FoMoCo stamped coil is not know.
Q: Does the location of the coil differ depending if my 1965 Mustang has a generator, alternator or AC ?
A: Generator equipped cars had the coil mounted on the intake with the yellow top pointed towards the front of the car, terminals in the 4 and 6 o'clock position (clock positions on original cars varied).
A: Alternator equipped cars had the coil mounted on the front of the intake with the yellow top up and the terminals in the 12:30 and 2:30 position (clock positions on original cars varied).
A: AC equipped cars didn't have the coil in a special location.
