There was a TSB way back when about the distributor pickup coil insulation material disintegration problem, so look at the pickup and see if the material is falling apart right between where the hold down bolts attach, this causes the contacts to move out of position and miss the ignition control module.

if there is a relay next to the batterie that the hot wire goes to it might be that aswell cause that is a starter relay that engages the electricity to the ignition and start and everything else eletronic
