I don't know why not. The conversion just replaces the points/cam mecanism, right? If it uses the same rotor and distributor body, then a factory style cap would be required.

apparently I need to swap my stock cap for and HEI cap, in order to get the spiral core wires needed for the pertronix .

You can use your stock cap/rotor for all the Pertronix units. I'm using Accel 8.8mm wires with mine.....

Well, all GM V8 engines took the same dist. cap from 1957 thru 1973......you can go from there. Any standard plug wire will be fine, as long as it measures less than 25k ohm resistance per foot of cable. Have fun.
