NO NO!  The retard will work at low rpms as long as there is minimal  
Boost starts around 2000rpm. Frank, look at the 65 Shop Manual page   6Y-16 
fig 11. Pressure retard retards spark to below static  setting.

Consider  the completely stock turbo Corvair that   comes with NO vacuum
advance  and only has pressure ignition   RETARD that works at rpms ABOVE  
(for the 1965 and 66   models).  Driving these cars in  traffic means using 
CONSTANT  FIXED  ignition timing (24 degrees  BTDC) until you get above  
rpm AND  achieve some   boost
