And the Delcotronic ignition was first targetted for the 1962 SD Pontiacs 
so development was done by mid-1961. Though AFAIK it became a 
Chevrolet/Pontiac option the intent was to make available for all car lines.

When the Delcotronic ignition was fitted on a Pontiac with a tachometer, a 
transistorized tach circuit was used in place of the normal passive one.

At the time the mag-impulse Delcotronic was known as a "breakerless" 
ignition. I still have an iron 1111040 around here somewhere.
