Location of Ignition Coil for 65 GTO Tripower

Could someone tell me where the ignition coil would be mounted on a 65 GTO with a Tripower intake? What type of holder would be used and where could I purchase the holder . When I bought the car it had a large aftermarket coil mounted on the Firewall which I have removed as I want to install a stock coil in the correct location. Thanks

Here is an aftermarket bracket from OPGI. Below are pictures of the bracket on my 66 with a Carter 4bbl. The bracket was located in the same place for both years.

Yes, '65 is the same. Mounted on the back side of the passenger side cylinder head.
