Default Day 2 ignition box ID

Hello all, Iím looking for some help trying to ID the Day 2 after market ignition box that was previously installed on the firewall of my 1969 Big Block Camaro. Iíve owned the car about 15 years and the original drivetrain is all missing. So I restored it into a Day 2 street car. The previous owner told me it was a street racer turned 1/4 mile track car. But never cut up. Iíd like to reinstall the same ignition box that was previously installed prior to my ownership. The only thing I have to go on is 2 screw holes in the firewall directly above the heater core box. The 2 holes are 3 1/4 inches apart. The typical boxes that Iím aware of that used 2 mounting holes are Mallory (see 2 photos) and Accel square style boxes. However they donít come even close to fitting directly above the heater box and hood when closed (unless the heater box was removed back in the day). So this leaves me with the long narrow MSD etc style ignition boxes, however those are 4 hole style boxes. Anyone have any suggestions or clues of manufacturers that used 2 mounting holes spaced 3 1/4 inches apart? Much appreciated Rob

Found my answer!!!

Default Great detective work!!

Glad you found your answer. The Mallory coil will look good on the firewall. It would be very helpful if you posted photos of your Camaro.

Now you need the electronic ignition, shutter wheel, distributor conversion to go with it...

Any holes under the dash that might correspond to one of these ? My 36 Chevy gasser that raced in the 60s came with one.
