fantastic new distributors

STROMBERG has their new distributors done
Cool new flathead Ford speed part. 2 bolt and three bolt versions
Remember I am a dealer , call me ,email me.

The initial Stromberg e-FIRE range comprises four front-mount distributors for Ford 59A flathead engines: 11A-style three-bolt (1932-41) and 21A-style two-bolt (1942-48) models in 12 volt negative or 6 volt positive ground. New models for other hot rod engines are planned.
11A-6 Three-bolt 6 volt positive
11A-12 Three-bolt 12 volt negative
21A-6 Two-bolt 6 volt positive
21A-12 Two-bolt 12 volt negative
Good Stuff 
Let’s start with e-FIRE electronic ignition for every model. No points, no condenser, no black (or red) box and very little maintenance. Just higher efficiency, economy and accurate spark timing. It’s easy to install, with just two wires to a regular coil. The advance rate and total advance are tuned specifically to suit the flathead V8 motor and every e-FIRE distributor is machine tested and ready to run. 
Best news is, the new Stromberg distributor looks like it belongs on a traditional flathead motor, with a regular (stock) black cap and the static timing screw on the side so it looks and adjusts just like a stocker. There’s an old-school performance tag with a unique ID number, and it’s also made as short as possible, which is important if you’re building a hot rod.
