Points and condenser is the first thing that comes to mind, carb needing overhauled, fuel pump failure, today's fuel is really hard on these old fuel systems. You may windup needing to rebuild the carb with a new ethanol kit, replace the fuel pump with one ethanol approved and replace all the rubber fuel hoses with the new multi-fuel type. Good Luck HTH
