Possible ignition module, should be located on left fender area. May be grey in color, when it heats up after driving and you shut off engine it may not start back until it cools off. Check coil wire and spark plug wires,dist. cap and rotor button. Good luck.

Ditto ignition module or possibly the stator in the distributor.

Ignition modules on Early model Fords were prone to heat failure, especially on performance type vehicles like my Grand Torino. Before long they will fail while driving, leaving you stranded. Usually removing the module and pouring cold water over it will correct the problem until it heats up again. On my Grand Torino I actually had to move it to a location away from the engine.
