429 Distribuitor Advice

Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and this is my first post, so here goes!
I have a 1955 F100 that's fitted with a stock 429 and a C6 tranny, my question is, I want to swap out the stock distribuitor to an electronic one and was wondering what one you guys could recommend? Like which ones to avoid as I understand there are some cheap copies on eBay, my stock distribuitor's vacuum advance also doesn't work at all so I'd thought id upgrade as I can't be arsed with messing with points anymore either!
Thanks in advance.

Get a Duraspark from Scotty at RHP. Parts are easy to get and Scotty can set it up for you. No big deal wiring it and using factory parts, and cheaper to boot!!

My vote is also for Scotty.

If you're not living on the edge you're taking up too much space!
