I have a Powerforce starter in my '67 and I'm happy with it. Much lighter than the OE-style starter. Keep in mind, you'll have to do some rewiring to bypass the fender-mounted solenoid. You also need to be more careful about cranking times with the mini-starters. They use up a lot more juice and can get quite a bit hotter in the process, so you need to let them cool after 10-15sec of cranking.

I run a Powermaster on mine. Thermal coating, wires like a factory starter, and the starter can be clocked on the mount to rotate it for clearance with headers etc.

Ditto for mine. Been using it for 3 or 4 years and it works just fine.
