There may be more to it than just low quailiy points. The distributor lobes 
are 15 + years old as well.  It would be a good idea to remove the dist and 
polish the lobes. In fact it would be a good time to remove the breaker plate 
and lube the advance weights.

Electronic ignition will offer a slight performance gain, while not 
measurable on a dyno it will offer crisper throttle responce if the plug gaps 
are opened a bit.  Say from .025 to .035 In.
