Check for a burned out fuseable link down by the starter. HTH. -Jim

Have you replaced the condenser in the distributor? How about the voltage regulator? The old cars didn't have too much protection but your alternator also may need checking out, or is it still the generator? 6 volt or converted to 12 volt? Check all fuses also. Coil? That is about what is all there is to the old cars.
