You will likely have to reuse the condenser (capacitor) by adding it to your harness.

There were several capacitors connected to the ignition system to combat radio interference. There was one on the coil, one behind instrument cluster to the voltage limiter, one inside the alternator.,

I know my situation is not directly related to yours, but I bought a new ignition switch, suppodedly to fit a 1970-74 E body. It had an extra black wire, which my '70 car does not have.
