Years ago an owner of a 1946 or 47 Chevrolet pick-up truck was showing 
me an interesting factory equiped feature of the vehicle. The starter was 
activated by a floor switch. When pressed it would also operate a rotary 
switch that reversed the current to the points. Every time the engine was 
started the current was reversed. It was supposed to reduce breaker point 
pitting (and spark plug life?).  I don't know if it was successful. Maybe the 
aftermarket ignition suppliers asked Chevy to drop it?
