Hey Jacob , try checking your wires to the points as I have found some trucks are vibrating the wires causing a dead short which is cause the truck to miss fire or end up stalling .

that would make sense because i only have a three speed and around 65 the rpms are fairly high causing vibrations. thanks! ill try that

I had that issue on a 69 F100 I used to have, had a 240 I6, anyway I racked so many miles on the truck that the distributor itself was worn. New Distributor fixed my issue. (I checked plugs, wires, points, timing damn thing had me stumped for a few days.
