I had one of these...the oil seals around the distributor put oil IN the distributor and it failed...not any kind of fail but put the power on the detonation position...motor was a little bit wrecked after the replacement of the distributor...a great car with just a few minor technical glitches...that darned distributor full of oil is one of them~

get a New battery and assure the cables to the engine and the chassis are there and able to pull 80 amps~ wirebrush the connections with a dit of brake cleaner to expose the fresh connections~
