check and see if it has a egnition modguler fords did that a lot some years ago let them cool off and they would start right up

I had the same problem. It's the ignition switch. You can buy a new one off Ebay for £35 & it takes about 10 minutes to swap it over to the new one (and I'm not a mechanic). You can see how to do it on YouTube.
