Sounds to me like a timing light, which is a strobe light.

Got some pictures to show us?

It's a distributor machine...used to determine the rate of centrifugal advance, total amount of cent. advance, & a number of other functions. A very good tuning tool, in the right hands. The most common brand found is/was Sun. Not seen so often nowadays in the world of electronic control modules & distributorless ignitions...
