The early Ford distributor (1964½ – 1973) has evolved over the years. These distributors served many purposes, from daily driver vehicles up to NASCAR competition.
There were four basic distributors used in this era.
* 1964½ and earlier: These were Autolite Distributors that had an oil access hole with a small cap located just under the main body of the distributor.
* 1965 through 1967: Autolite distributors were used, but the oil access hole had been discontinued.
* 1967 through 1971: FoMoCo distributors replaced the Autolite distributors.
* 1972 and 1973: The Motorcraft distributor replaced the FoMoCo distributor.
