Smile electronic distributor upgrade

I'm new to this forum, but I've just obtained a 1974 280C, with the m110 engine.
I'd like to upgrade from the distributor points system.
Will the electronic ignition systems from later M110 engines work?
Does anyone(pertronix ie) offer a replacement distributor with electronic ignition?
Thanks for the help, and I look forward to working in this forum.

Yep, Pertronix is the way to go. Theirs is a drop-in system that takes about an hour to install, if that. Good stuff, that. I highly recommend it.

Is your car a carbed or EFI model?
