You really didn't supply much info. Is the engine carburated? Points, condensor, and rotor? Was it running when it died? Did it just fail to start one morning? Does it turn over? Engines not loaded down with electronics are most often easy to diagnosis. For combustion to occur you need air, fuel, and spark. Begin checking.


OOpse, missed your statement it died while driving. Check to make sure the engine is getting fuel. A vehicle that old may have crud in the tank. Have you changed the fuel filter lately? You'd be surprised what accumulates in the bottom of old metal tanks, expecially after forty years.
