    That looks like the infamous "Gold Box", but can you please post some more info so we can help you.

    ok so i bought this 1975 international pick up. Model 200 i think. but im taking it apart for the sweet sweet 345 im going to put into my scout and this engine reads only 36k miles on it, and it looks like it to. no oil leaks, really clean engine. but back on track.. so im ripping off these stupid vacuum lines without a care and now onto the mires, i look and this box and it says electronic ignition, and this truck also has this computer thing, it says engine speed sensory unit. but would this ignition system be worth keeping it?, or is throwing a petronix in there better?

    The 75 came with the Holley gold box module. The distributor and module, assuming they work, can be sold on the classifieds or wherever. Many people still use them, and it's nice to have a hot spare. 50 bucks or trade for a different style distributor would be about fair, but if you can get 5000, go for it.

    Wow, got you with that one. Put your leg back in its socket. Didn't mean to pull it so hard.
