Any 351 Cleveland (not Windsor), or 429/460 distributor will work. Stock Boss 351s used a 'spread bore' carb, unless you are using an aftermarket Holley/square bore intake.
Current lifelong project:
1969 Mustang Fastback/FOX chassis, 5 speed, 4 wheel discs, with a modern Can-Am 494 (Boss 429), Kaase heads, intake mounted with a 1425 cfm 'B' Autolite Inline carb, ala Trans-Am style…Whew!

A Holley carb will bolt right on the B351 intake.  The B351 spread bore intake uses a square bore bolt pattern.  The primary bores, in the intake, are slightly smaller that a square bore intake, however, so a thick carb gasket is necessary to raise the throttle plates just a bit.
