    I have a stock HEI coil in it for now. The '56 has the adapter cap with an external Blaster coil. I also have a Ford with the MSD coil. All of the MSD units are 6A models and have worked well. I wish I had gone with the 6AL on the '56, but that's hindsight.

    I'm very partial to the stock GM HEI systems. They are pretty bullet proof and work well for the RPM range most of us use. I just happened into some decent deals for these MSD units.
