GM HEI 4 Pin Ignition Module 
used in 1974-1988 Chevy Pontiac Oldsmobile GMC maybe others
About $15 at N.A.P.A.

Uses reluctor pickup in OEM applications
Can be used with points by adding a pull-up resistor
works well with digital signal for input: Hall effect, optical, timer,

Example of use with wiring diagrams etc. where is triggered by pulse
from car computer:

That would be my recommendation:-)
