Delco, Echlin (NAPA), Borg-Warner, Wells, Standard Blue Streak, not bad stuff. Under NO circumstances, use the "Uni-Point" sets that have the condenser mounted directly on the points, they are pure junk.
Never, ever, ever file, dress, sand a points set. The contact faces are tungsten coated, and sanding/dressing them removes the tungsten, allowing the faces to burn and pit exponentially quicker.
never had a problem filing a tit off a set of points back in the day. if fact when I was a kid, I had a problem with the engine missing. my neighbor, a master mechanic, looked at the car and , long story short, filed the points. the car ran great for another 6 months until I could afford a new set of points
I usually used accell

Standard Motor Parts make points that are of good quality. They can be purchased at NAPA from the following list. The 24 oz points are for redlines up to 5500 rpm. The 32 0z points are for redlines up to 7000 rpm.
"I would ditch the points and go with a pertronix conversion." NOPE, if that is the only option, keep the points.
Why keep the points when there are much, much better options available?
