Did you fill-up recently? Could be vapor-lock. See also https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vapor_lock
You need to find out if it is fuel spark related, pull off the coil tower wire and see if it is throwing a good spark, if it is then put a little fuel in the carb and see if it fires up. Then you will know where to go next. I have 2 suspicions, 1 is the distributor points may have closed up, so no or very little spark, 2 the fuel pump is bad, when it get hot it quits working.
I have HEi distriburtor
That just involves a little more electronics, still find out if it is spark or fuel related. HEI just makes it more complex in the testing for spark, and if you get too close to the towers when testing it hurts more.
