NO. Those have a lip on the distributor to clamp down to, which is why yours just sits and spins. in the distributor hole.
I am going to go out on a limb here and say follow the four wires that are attached to the orange box, one or more may be hooked up and drawing power, or worse, shorted somewhere and starting the alternator overcharge with increased rpm. Once you get your book, go through the wiring under the hood, bulkhead connector, then look under the dash, that horn wire may actually still be a problem shorting out full time (it sits on a spring and rides against a ring inside the steering column under the steering wheel and grounds when you hit the horn ring, now the wire is hitting against metal and grounding full time), and the faster your engine rpm goes the short may also be draining more power, it is direct wired, no fuse (safety, along with the headlights), and be a constant ground, so definitely get that fixed as another possibility.
Now, go to a salvage yard, find the distributor(there are about 15million slant sixes in all cars and trucks, so look around in the Dodge section), pull the clamp off and drop it in your pocket. At the same time, look at things on the slant six engine you get it off of and see if there is anything that looks different from yours that may be an issue on yours. You don't need to keep buying distributors, most likely your condenser is blowing out due to the overcharge. Remember, on the firewall above the engine usually, is a white ceramic piece called a ballast resistor. This reduces the voltage to the points or electronic ignition so things don't burn out. Now, in an emergency, and with points, the ballast resistor, which to tend to go out, so a spare is usually kept in the glove box by all ballast resistor owners (true, not a joke, just funny), but make sure there isn't a wire connecting the two sides right now, with points you can do it temporarily in an emergency, but more than a couple miles will burn things up and you will be buying new points and condenser shortly thereafter, not another new distributor, points and condenser is about $12 on the high priced places.
