Top one must be a Spalding Flamethrower or Grant Flamethrower

Two coils, two sets of points and worked very well.

C-Body, I don't know the second one.

Looks like a dual ignition system too, but looks more custom or homemade.

Well done.. the correct name is a Grant Spalding. This was a performance dual point, dual coil dizzy from the 60's a lot of the big block Mopars would upgrade from the Chrysler dual point to the Grant Spalding.

The second dizzy is also a performance dizzy but was popular in the 20's and 30's, the factory is still custom making ignition systems today...
