Upgrade your classic Aston Martin Ignition to a Pertronix.

PerTronix Ignitor® electronic ignition systems deliver more energy with greater timing accuracy

For over thirty years, the Ignitor has proven itself in applications ranging from race cars to tractors. The Ignitor replaces breaker point and troublesome factory electronic ignitions with a dependable, self-contained and maintenance free electronic ignition system. The Ignitor has been called the "stealth" ignition because of its quick installation and nearly undetectable presence under your distributor cap.


Can be used with most point-type coils, optimal performance achieved when used with our Flame-Thrower® 40,000 volt coil.

Works great in stock point-type distributors as a trigger for multi-spark CD ignitions, eliminating the need for expensive aftermarket distributors.

No complicated wiring makes installation easy.

A solid-state electronic ignition system. "Never change points again!"
